She only wants his money. So why does her heart ache when he's near, and why can't he stay away?
Vicky is smart, successful and planning her next challenge: to renovate a derelict farm in northern England. The pain of events from her own childhood inspires her to build a respite holiday centre for children. All she needs is a rich patron...
Kendall Carr-Jones has large title, an enormous heap of cash, and a truly vast pile of regrets. After his divorce, he expects his future to consist of his gentleman's club, visits to the races, and falling asleep at shareholders' meetings. He also has the illusion of being a caddish rake to maintain.
Somehow, Kendall is persuaded to invest in her plan. Then Vicky's father arrives, bringing heartache and memories.
But can Vicky's choices in the present really change her past? And how much control do we have over events - and our own desires - anyway?
