Tatiana has struggled through ten years of hell. Refusing to give in to the devastation visited on her by her husband’s desertion and the attentions of a madman, she’s worked nonstop to pull her life together.
Tati is tired now. She’s done. If not for Von, she would have thrown in the towel and let the bad guy win. He was her best friend once. Have the years without her taught him bitterness or has he finally grown into the man she thought she’d married? Is there a safe haven out there for her hunted, wounded heart?
