Emily Winslow felt deeply indebted to James Parker when she learned that his wounds resulted from trying to save her brother’s life in the trenches of World War I. But by the time she discovered what really happened on that battlefield in France, Emily had fallen for James’s charm.

But all of her inner turmoil is churned to the surface once again when Ian Marlowe walks into her life. Emily is uncertain whether she can ever trust a man again—or if she can trust her own heart.
