To Have & To Keep
Sebastian Mills never imagines that his sweet, young bride, Rebecca, is anything other than what she has presented to him. They dated for six months before deciding to tie the knot. It was a beautiful ceremony, surrounded by friends and family. At the wedding dinner, everyone was impressed with his beautiful young bride. Everyone except his best friend, Christine, who apparently knew something about his wife that he didn't, but he was so in love he paid her no mind and left for his honeymoon. The night of the honeymoon, while they were checking into the hotel, his sweet, young wife disappeared into the night.
Sebastian has refused to divorce her. The way she left, taking his heart with her, left him feeling used and abused. It has taken him years to get rid of the stigma and the bitter taste her hasty departure has left with him. He knows she's out there, and it's only a matter of time before he finds her. When he does, he's determined to get his revenge on her.
Now five years later, still reeling from her betrayal and enraged by her deceitful nature, he runs into her while on a job, only now she's no longer the sweet, young woman he married. This woman insists, most vehemently, that she was running to save her life when she fled on their wedding night.
Trying to get at the truth, which he's convinced lies somewhere in the middle, reawakens their explosive passion... and now, it burns hotter than ever. But with five years of separation between them, Sebastian and Rebecca must trust each other in order to get to the root of the matter. Can they do this and still maintain the passion and love they once shared?
