Somber, mourning Miss Laurel Clarke is deeply and quietly Pissed Off…a fact that even she doesn’t properly realize until she learns that the child she thought was dead was merely stolen and now resides in the hands of Jack, the man who gave Laurel the most wonderful night of her life…and then ruined that life the next day. Her own family being part of the betrayal, Laurel decides to take her tiny daughter and leave all the bastards in her dust! Unfortunately, Jack won’t let Melody go. When Laurel tries to take her, he won’t let Laurel go either! Locked in Jack’s attic isn’t the best way to gain Laurel’s forgiveness…yet even she can’t deny the incendiary attraction that has always flared between them. Hey, what happens in the attic stays in the attic!
