(From the publisher):
After five bitter years of separation, Rad still had a powerful hold on Lainie. “All I’m asking in return for my help is that you resume your former duties,” he told her bluntly. Lanie stared at him aghast. What a fool she had been not to accept his previous offer with no strings attached! Her refusal then had been dictated by pride. Now need forced her decision…. What frightened her was that she actually wanted to go back to Rad!
“Why do you want me back, Rad?” His reply was instant and sharp. “Why do you think?” “I don’t know.” Lainie’s eyes blurred. “Maybe you want revenge against me. I know I hurt and disappointed you all those years ago. I also know that you still want me physically….” Her voice trembled and she steeled herself to remain composed. “You’re a very clever girl, Lainie, to figure it out all by yourself,” he sneered. “Or were you about to add something? Were you going to suggest that I might be desperately in love with you?” She shook her head slowly. Rad didn’t love her. He never had. And once he got his revenge — or tired of her — what then? She couldn’t bear to be without him again!
