Manhattan businessman Richard Brooks was at the top of the world, drunk with
Success … Wealth … Women …
And he proudly lived that prodigal lifestyle.
Until one disastrous evening, when that world came crashing down.
Richard flees to Minneapolis where he repairs ancient boilers instead of solving corporate problems, and he’s determined to live the solitary life he now deserves … chained to his guilt. Blending in with the gray. No luxuries in sight.
But executive Sheila Peterson has other plans for the handsome custodian. She’s had it with serious relationships, and Richard appears to be the perfect match for the no-strings-attached romance she desires. Instead, she finds a man who is complex, brilliant, and shrouding a tormented past.
In her quest to uncover the secrets holding Richard captive, will her own secrets remain buried?
