On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgave their spoiled son, who with his two friends changed her life forever. Someday, somehow, she'd return... exacting a just revenge, freeing herself from her enemies' grasp, and, perhaps, fulfilling a lost promise of love.
