When a spring tornado roars through Magnolia Valley, Georgia, it destroys Julia Wilkes' plans to expand her hotel. But, while combing through the rubble of her once-beautiful ballroom, she sees a vaguely familiar man caring for her injured guests. Those amber eyes, she'd know them anywhere. Despite his denial, the huge male with a shaved head, multiple piercings, and a tattooed body is Luke Chevalier, the first man she ever loved. Will he stay long enough for her to discover the secret that caused him to leave twelve years ago, or will he once again disappear without a word of goodbye?
