Four years after her divorce, Vanessa Cantrell owns an interior decorating firm, a European sports car, and an apartment in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Even though she filled her home and her life with expensive things, she couldn’t fill the void left by her ruggedly handsome ex-husband, Race. When tragedy brings them together again, she finds he is still the same irresponsible wildcatter she’d walked out on. But he hasn’t lost his powerful, sensual magnetism. She’s still drawn to him…but Vanessa knows she must never again become a wildcatter’s woman.
