Three years ago Jennie's husband rejected her because she was unable to have a child. She filed for divorce in Nevada and waited out the residency requirement at Lake Tahoe. That's where Rand met her, where he made love to her. Where she left him when her husband changed his mind.
He never forgot her, never stopped missing her and what might have been.
Now she's a widow, still grieving for her husband a year after his death, still regretting that brief affair. When he appears at her door, she knows her life will never be the same. Even though she's tried to forget him, done her best to forget that she'd been unfaithful to her husband, she can't deny the past. Rand still hopes Jennie will someday be his, but after he meets her two-year-old daughter, his hope turns to steely determination. She will marry him, whether she loves him or not, because Miranda is his...must be his.
He is not unreasonable. He gives her six months to accept his ultimatum. He'll wait six months while they date, get to know each other again. Six months until they marry...or else.
With the threat of a paternity test hanging over her, Jennie does the only thing she can. She dates Rand and allows him to become acquainted with Miranda. As time and his loving attention gradually wear down her resistance, she wonders if she will ever be able to overcome her guilt and shame over their affair and accept the love Rand is offering.
