Forty long years of unrequited love…
Matriarch of the Texas Connaghers, Virginia has been alone twelve years since the great love of her life passed away. Tyrell loved her sadist’s heavy hand and her hard inner core, something she’s not dared to share with anyone else. She lives in the past, clinging to all those memories except one. The one she’s determinedly blocked out of her heart and mind for nearly forty years. The one time she was almost unfaithful to her then-fiancé with her best friend, Jebadiah Garrett.
That was a long time ago. They both married and moved on. She has three adult children settling down with their own families. Besides, it was just a kiss. One kiss.
One unforgettable kiss that brought Jebadiah to his knees at her feet.
Now he’s back in town and determined to finally tell her once and for all how much he’s loved her all these years. Or, even better, he’ll show her by going to his knees once more. If she’ll only give him the chance.
