Summary

Outrunning the demons that dog her in Miami, Troy escapes south to the Bahamas, the land of her birth.  She hopes that the new millennium can bring a new life and banish the specter of her parents' sudden and violent death, a crazy ex-boyfriend, and a stint in jail to the sea of forgetfulness. In paradise, she finds work as a Spanish tutor to Evie, a rebellious teenager whose life uncannily parallels her own. However, it is Simon, Evie's uncle, who makes his mark on Troy. 
For seven years, Simon has kept his promise to Deanna, his dead twin sister, protecting Evie, despite her painful and vicious rejection of him. That task and the demands of an investment banking career leave him little time for love. Desperate, he hires Troy, expecting that she would be just another tutor that Evie runs off with undue speed. Until fate intervenes… 
Troy and Simon have a lot in common—painful loss through death, a cautious nature, and a shared heritage that has linked the Bahamas and communist Cuba across the decades. Eventually, proximity, circumstance, and love for Evie soften Troy’s rough edges and melt the permafrost around Simon’s heart.  Simon offers Troy a ready-made family and shelter from the storms of life. 
But demons don’t give up so easily. When Troy’s past comes back to haunt her in the present, she must decide whether to take the path of least resistance that leads in the opposite direction... or to head toward the lights of home.

    He would take her as his bride...but could she give her heart in return? 
    When Egan MacBain takes beautiful Glenda MacKay as his bride, it appears that he's done so for the noblest of reasons. In truth, he has vowed at last to claim the woman he's always loved--yet once lost--to another man. But the rugged Highlander is determined to keep his passion hidden while he woos her with his gentle caress and wicked kisses. For he will not have an unwilling wife and will only show his tenderness once she is tamed. 
    Although Glenda has agreed to the marriage, she's only done so to gain the protection of Egan's name. Yet this young widow of the once-powerful clan MacKay never expected that vows of love would leave her lips again, nor did she believe she'd ever hold any man so dear. But suddenly she finds herself succumbing to the strong, silent warrior who fills her with trepidations and a fevered, forbidden yearning to fulfill his wicked promise of the love--and the child--she aches for in the depths of the soul.
