If fate gives you a third chance, would you take it?
Joel Harrington has been in love with the same woman for as long as he could remember. But he had to watch her court his best friend, and then marry his king. Now that she’s once more unattached, he refuses to let her slip through his fingers for a third time.
Darkness torments Nyana’s memories, and even after her cruel husband is killed, he still haunts her from the grave. When her past refuses to leave her alone, it puts not only her, but her daughters in danger. She has no choice but to lean on the man she has called a friend for the past eight years, a friend whose charms she tries hard to resist.
But along with the growing threat to her family, she keeps an even more dangerous secret—a secret that could change her life forever.
Can the melody of love lure Nyana to trust the one man who’s never failed her? Nyana is haunted by the past, especially by the violent cruelty of her late husband, the king. She can’t escape his taunting from the great beyond. To ensure her daughters’ safety and her own, she put her faith in her friend, Joel. Joel’s kindness is a soothing salve for her fragile heart. While she tries to not succumb to his charms, every moment with him is bliss. When her past rears its ugly head, she knows she and her daughters are in danger. She’s harboring a dark secret, but can she entrust Joel with her heart, mind, and spirit? Will he run when she reveals the truth or will love overcome all?
