Destiny can show the way home…if it can navigate the shadows of Fate.
Brian McKay’s love for Marité Muro burns with the heat of an eternal flame. But when
he catches her cousin, Michael, forcing an unwanted kiss upon her, Brian’s jealousy
comes dangerously close to flaring out of control.
In a moment of despair, he packs his bags and boards a plane for Round Rock,
convinced Marité will be better off with anyone else. Someone younger. Someone who
isn’t dragging around a crippling load of baggage—and PTSD-fueled demons.
Anger tears at Marité’s heart as she flees to her Abuela’s home. Anger at Brian for
abandoning her so easily. At Michael for trying to reignite their past infatuation. Mostly,
anger at herself for realizing too late that it’s past time to grow up, take responsibility for
her own part in the debacle, and fight for the only man she’ll ever love.
But Fate has a few more tricks to play before Brian and Marité find the strength to

Her stomach tightened with the impulse to weep, and she pressed a stifling palm to her lips. Did you expect to find answers, resolution? No…she’d only wanted to relive a little. Have one last taste. Repeat the experience, kiss him, touch him again, if only in her thoughts, before she said good-bye. But with every passing second, this insane exercise was becoming impossible to sustain. The pale threads of the half-moon illuminated Brian’s room, and wherever she looked, she found him, the brilliant gaze, the sunny smile, the unforgettable vows: “You are my heart. My soul belongs to you.”
Tears stung her eyes. Frustration and a sense of futility churned together on a road to anger, a rebellion against her masochistic impulse. Stubbornly, she stepped to the bed, ran a fingertip along the soft bedspread, and froze. There, scant feet ahead, hanging innocently on the back of the chair, Brian’s cane remained forgotten.
Marité bolted out of the room. If the door shut with a loud slam and woke up the entire house, she couldn’t have cared less.
