Dominic fell in love with Faith—the ultimate love affair that ended with her heart broken and his torn apart.
Now Dominic is back. Can they heal the scars of their past?
Dominic Charles fell in love with the woman of his dreams, only it wasn’t to be. Unexpectedly, he had no choice but to leave. Faith was everything to him, and he’s never gotten over her. But now, he wants her back. Will she forgive him and accept that his life has changed? And does he have the faith needed to take a step back, and let God…
Faith Pearson planned to marry the one and only man who had taken her heart, but he left her and married someone else. Now he is back, and she has no intention of having anything more to do with him. Or so she thinks. For a second time God has allowed their paths to cross. Can she find it in her heart to forgive him?
He looked down at the papers on his desk, trying to focus, but finding this difficult, his heart racing.
He stood, shoving his hands into his pockets, and looked out the large windows at London’s landscape. It was raining. He closed his eyes for a moment, remembering one day he and Faith had been caught in the rain.
It was a Saturday afternoon, and they’d spent the day together, on a whim driving to Brighton. The weather being warm at the height of summer, visiting the seaside town seemed only fitting. Faith had made sandwiches, not very good ones, but they’d laughed and ate them anyway.
Walking hand in hand along the pebbled beach, they took selfies, the wide expanse of deep blue sea in view, the sea breeze whipping Faith’s hair into his face.
He drew her close and kissed her, desire filling him as she wrapped her arms around his neck, pressing her body against his. The decision to wait hadn’t come easy to him. He wanted her badly, but he respected her and would wait until they were married. But he wanted it to be soon, he did not see a future without Faith. “Let’s go to the funfair,” he suggested.
“And go on those rickety old rides over the pier? You must be joking!”
“Come on, Faith, don’t be a chicken.” He smiled and took her hand, pulling her toward the pier.
She laughed. “No way!”
Then the heavens opened with a downpour that had them both running and laughing for cover to the pier.
Dressed in only a vest top and skirt, she was soaked through. She looked up embarrassed, hugging her chest. He took off his sweatshirt and wrapped it around her. “There’s no need to be embarrassed with me,” he said softly, caressing her cheek. “You’re going to be my wife.”
She smiled, reaching up and bringing his head down toward her for a kiss. He delighted in her. She was everything to him.
Little did he know that the joy and elation he felt at being with Faith would be shattered the following week.
