He already knew, but he’s about to be reminded: Your whole world can change forever in a split second.

A man with a broken heart.

Doug Benton’s heart was broken when he misread the cues of a purely sexual threesome. But when he meets Vivian, the sister of his employer’s daughter-in-law, he wonders if she’s as hungry for a real relationship as he is. There’s just one problem: He’s a Dominant. And Vivian is possibly the most vanilla woman he’s ever met. That knowledge leaves him wondering if they could ever have anything that would last.

A woman scorned.

Vivian Norton has been dumped one too many times – the last time, at the altar. To make matters worse, she’s fallen in love with the one man she most certainly shouldn’t have. When she meets Doug at a Walters family gathering, her first thought of the good looking security agent is simply, What a heartbreaker! As Vivian gets to know Doug, she begins to wonder if they could have something more than just a fling and, even though she’s scared, his calm strength gives her security and hope.

As time passes, it becomes more and more obvious to the strong, passionate young man and the sweet, innocent, curvy redhead that they want a relationship that’ll stand the test of time. Everything falls into place, and they discover that each is exactly what the other needs.

But all it takes is one simple mistake to ruin everything.

And when Doug makes that mistake, there’s no going back. He doesn’t mean to. He tries to fix it, to take it back, to make it all right, but Vivian is having none of that. And when he finally forces her hand, he learns a painful lesson.
