Having returned home to deal with her mother’s funeral, Kate Rivers is taking stock of her life. Though she has enjoyed some success in her acting career, her life isn’t all she hoped it would be. She has never married nor had the children she has always wanted. Being an unofficial step-mother to her lover’s twin daughters has never seemed the same, especially as Paul’s girls had never given her the chance. And now it’s far too late. For tragedy has struck Paul’s family, and just when she needs him most, it is he who needs a shoulder to cry on . . . Unable to find the emotional support she craves, Kate looks further afield for comfort, and finds herself falling for her beautiful—and married—cousin, Rhydian. But is her affair a second chance at happiness, or just a dangerous infatuation?
