Simeon's Promise II
Inhaling the mingled scents of pine and parched earth, Simeon perched on a forested hill in New Mexico meditating on the woman being tended to by his unlikely partners. Weeks before, he'd been breathless when she arrived at the gates of Leavenworth Penitentiary. Their time together since was volatile...chaotic. But then she vanished.
Someone abducted Nadine. A reality that should have meant nothing to Simeon. But the truth was he became desperate to find her—frantic in a way he would have never believed possible. That was when he understood entirely. The two of them were linked in ways that defied explanation or understanding.
But their improbable bond could be explored over time. Now that he found her it was time to interrogate the people who took her...discover why. He stood to take the first step back to where the others held them, his soul shifting from wonderment toward antipathy. By the time his foot touched earth for the third time, remorse had left him...

Fourteen years later—a seeming lifetime, the Secretary of State’s daughter comes forward with the stunning truth that sets her innocent victim free. But Nadine’s mind is far from tamed. Uncontrollable and unfulfilled desires still torment her.
