With the family fortune gone, Brooke Carlisle has struggled to support her two younger sisters and make ends meet. Then Tyler Marshall comes back to town, seeking revenge because of the ruthless way in which Brooke had broken their engagement. But how much is enough to satisfy Ty? And what does he want, anyway? The remains of the Carlisle business? The family home? Or Brooke herself?
