When Tyne's son gets arrested she must face the man she left 16 years ago and never told he was a father.
A lot has happened and Tyne's and Lucas' lives since they have last seen each other. Lucas has become a well known up and coming lawyer and Tyne now owns her own business and is raising a teenage son. When the boy gets himself in trouble she turns to Lucas for help. Lucas doesn't know his son and after meeting him for an hour goes before a judge and tries to plead the teen's case. He comes up with an idea to help both his son and give him a little time to get to know the boy.
The hard judge is willing to give a try to Lucas' idea and places the boy in the custody of his father. Not meaning to take the boy away from Tyne, Lucas invites her to come back to their hometown and help the boy before his behavior turns worse.
The problems arise when Tyne does not turn out to be the woman that Lucas has painted her to be and he has secrets of his own that he is sure that Tyne will not like. Can the three repair the damage that has been done and help the boy change his life.
This is a sweet story of remembered young love, teen pregnancy and how lives don't always turned out the way it is planned. While the theme is common, the story is well written with enough changes to keep the story fresh until the end.
Sixteen years ago, Tyne Whitlock cut all ties to her past and left town under the shameful shadow of a teenage pregnancy. Now her fifteen-year-old son is in trouble with the law and she is desperate for help. But reaching out to high-powered attorney Lucas Silver Hawk will tear open the heart-wrenching past in ways Tyne never imagined.
Forced to return to the Delaware Indian community where Lucas was raised, Tyne and Lucas are tempted by the heated passion that consumed them as teens. Tyne rediscovers all the reasons she found this man irresistible, but there are scandalous secrets waiting to be revealed, disgraceful choices made in the past that cannot be denied. Love is a powerful force that could heal them both--if the truth doesn't rip them apart.
