Dharr has decided that the delicate beauty will be his future bride, although she does't really know who he is. But when he finds another man coming out of her apartment, he assumes the worst.
Five years later, he finds that he still can't get the innocent looking beauty out of his mind. When his niece and nephew need help, he blackmails Victoria to do the job, intending to have what he denied himself in their previous relationship - namely: her body.
Victoria was devastated the last time Dharr walked out of her life. Can she survive it the next time? She has to - for Dharr has threatened her friend and family and she'll do anything to protect them from his harsh punishments. She'll just have to be stronger this time around - and not let him into her heart like she did the last time he swooped into her life.
