2004 Best Small Press Romance Award Winner
"This is an exceptionally well-written novel. It's Clark's third book about the lives of the compelling Kinncaid brothers, but it easily stands alone. The main characters are subtle and complex from page one, especially the particularly strong, emotionally full-ranged heroine. The dialogue is outstanding, and the pacing both realistic and highly suspenseful." —Marilyn Weigel, Romantic Times

As the sins of his father continue to haunt him, Bryce learns the horrors of the past may not yet be buried.
