Zoe Matthews depends on no one, not even after her husband died-and it was her fault. The last thing she wants to do is hurt someone again. But the moment she meets her sexy new neighbor, George, she recognizes in her a soul as broken as her own. When one night leads to a passion unexpected, she’s drawn to the physical comfort George offers, without pity. Again and again.
It’s just sex. Isn’t it?
George Ellis lived a charmed life as a wealthy young doctor until a series of calamities left her a widow with a dead wife, and put her career on hold. Now all she wants to do is forget. If that includes hiding from the world and putting on an I-don’t-care facade-well, that’s a sacrifice she’s willing to make. Then she meets Zoe, and one night together isn’t enough.
Can George and Zoe leave the past behind them and forge a future of their own? Or will the ghosts of their pasts destroy them before they get their happy ending?
