Thirty years ago, teens Barbara Calvin and Taggart McGee were in love, but he had to leave. She vowed to marry him while he pledged to come back once his commitment ended. However, Barbara was carrying Tag's child and when she never heard from him she bowed to family pressure to marry his best friend Robert D'Angelo. Her dreams battered, Barbara and Robert raise Tag's daughter Tessa. Tag thinks her marriage was a case of out of sight out of mind and that his beloved Barbara betrayed him with his former best friend.
Now someone kills Robert and threatens Barbara and Tessa. This cold blooded killer knows Tag's most intimate secret that he still loves Barbara and would risk his life to keep her safe even if he thinks she is a Jezebel. This adversary dangles the two female D'Angelos to lure, trap and kill Tag who is the only living person besides himself aware of what he needs buried as he sets other plans in motion. True to form, Tag returns home to keep the woman he loves who he thinks betrayed him safe from his enemy.
The title is apropos as this is a second chance at love for this Lone Wolf warrior if he can keep his beloved, his offspring (whom he thought was someone else's daughter), her spouse, and his grandchild safe while bringing down a dangerous enemy who knows him as well as anyone does. The extended cast makes this an exciting romantic suspense thriller that grips readers from the moment that Barbara faces death and never slows down until the final confrontations on personal (between Tag, Barbara, and Tessa) and professional (vs. the killer) levels. Nancy Gideon provides a thrilling warrior tale (see WARRIOR WITHOUT RULES and WARRIOR WITHOUT A CAUSE for further enjoyment).
