(From the publisher):
er wild youth was a thing of the past. Valerie Wentworth had paid dearly for the mistakes she’d made as passionate girl. Turned out of her grandfather’s house, she had raised Tadd, her son, all alone. Now, after seven years, she had returned home for her grandfather’s funeral — even though it meant confronting Judd Prescott again. Judd… who didn’t know he was Tadd’s father. The man was more compellingly attractive than ever — but if Valerie had learned one thing it was to stay away from Judd Prescott. If only Judd would stay away from her!
“You little wildcat, you haven’t changed!” Judd Prescott jeered. “Seven years may have given you a certain amount of sophistication, but underneath you’re as passionate and untamed as ever. You want me to make love to you as much as I do." “No!” Valerie rushed to deny his words vigorously. His green eyes flashed at her. “I know you’ve been hurt and badly used. But I’m positive that I can make you forget the man who made pregnant and ran off.” “Forget?” Valerie’s laugh was strained and bitter. Judd Prescott was that man! If she told him, he would have one more reason to force her to resume their long-ago affair. She had fallen victim to her desire for him once — with dire consequences. She was not about to fall again.
