Summary

“Want it all? Read Ann Major.” –New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts  
Old flames steam up the bayou in another sultry romance from USA Today Bestselling Ann Major. 
  
Garret Cagan is a son of the bayou, raised on the water, with adoring, headstrong Noelle Martin at his adolescent heels. But when the youthful Noelle couldn't reconcile their passion with the wishes of her wealthy New Orleans family, Garret slammed the door on love. 
Now he lives his life with an unyielding honor that suits the badge he wears. But his Southern home is broken, his son mute and living with a grandmother. The only thing Garret has left is his pride … until Noelle returns and the shell of ice around his heart is cracked, maybe melted for good. Can he ever love again? 
Noelle Martin bowed to the wishes of her powerful family when she hid her affair with Garret. And when secrecy led to heartbreak, she fled to Australia in a desperate attempt to find peace. Now she's back home in New Orleans, and back in his domain. 
She'll do anything to gain Garret's forgiveness, and even more to help his son. But will her words be enough to make them a family again … or is she too late?
