He broke her heart and made her an object of scorn and derision in the national media…and now, to save her son, she might have to let him do it all over again.
Jade Lin dreamed of curing cancer. While she pursued a cure, America’s tabloid sweetheart, Kyle Galbraith, pursued her. When she finally gave him her heart, he publicly humiliated her by getting engaged to the woman his fans had been rooting for all along.
Unfairly shamed as the sore loser in the alleged love triangle, Jade was vilified from coast to coast. She lost everything—her good name, her reputation, and worst of all, her cancer research. She had no choice but to disappear and remake herself into someone no one would ever recognize again.
Ten years later, she’s attorney Verity James, and she fiercely protects her secrets, including the son Kyle knows nothing about. She wants to make partner at the largest law firm in Nevada—a powerful position from which she can better protect her son should the paparazzi ever find them. All she has to do is impress the firm’s newest client and get his company on retainer.
That client is Kyle, now Vice President of GEM, his family’s pharmaceutical company. He’s in Las Vegas to deal with a lawsuit filed against GEM’s miracle cancer-curing drug. He’s surprised to find Jade, the one woman he always regretted losing.
Their highly reactive chemistry still flashes hot, but the past isn’t easily forgiven. When they uncover alarming evidence of the drug’s horrific side-effect—one that could fundamentally change the world—everything they thought they knew about their past is called into question. When their son is threatened, can they sort through all the lies and deceit before it’s too late?

WOW – If I had to use only one word to describe this book it would be WOW. It has intrigue, romance and mystery. The plot flows smoothly and the pace is fast but comfortable. The characters are well defined and believable. The romance is not hot and sexy but shows a realistic development of a renewed relationship between the hero and heroine. The premise of the plot is sinister and thought provoking: the side effects of a newly developed cancer drug. The author details the scientific issues needed to moved the plot with enough details to make the story believable but uncomplicated enough for a lay person to understand. This is the second book in a series and I thoroughly enjoyed both books. Angela Forister is a talented writer.
