Sarah had everything, a handsome loving husband, a young son, then suddenly it was all snatched away. Defeated by outside forces, she made a new life for herself. But never forgot the life she once had. Risking everything if she was discovered, she returned to Canada, and crept back into Banff like a thief in the night.

The last person Jeff thought to see was Sarah, but walking down the aisle at his son’s wedding, he saw the one person he had never expected to see again. When his eyes met hers shock quickly turned to anger. Tracking her down was easy, then he had one question. Why? The answer was not what he expected, nor one that he could believe. Or could he?

He was everything she once wanted, and he gave her everything she needed. Except one thing, trust. Could she believe what he said now? Could she risk being hurt again?

Can the lies and deception be overcome?

His own life was good. He was married to Laura and they now had their own family. Everything was perfect. Too perfect. When life kicks you, it kicks you hard as he found out. Nothing he could do, no amount of money could change things. All he could do was face up to life and move on.

But when moving on annoyed the hell out of him, drove him to distraction, what could he do. And what would he do when he discovered things were not as he thought? Lies and deception had torn his family apart once, was he prepared to take a chance. Was he able to forgive and see beyond it?

Could he forget the past and risk everything for happiness?
