I’m Halton Andrew Smithers, attorney. Hal to my clients and friends.
Messy divorces, deadbeat dads, runaway wives, cheating partners—I handle them all.
I know the seedy side of love, and it isn’t pretty. I avoid emotional attachments—I’ve seen all too often when hot passion turns to frozen tundra.
I satisfy myself with helping people behind the scenes. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that completes my life.
Love struck me at a young age. Bertie Cooper owned my heart from the second grade right up until the moment I ruined everything.
I didn’t deserve her, not after what I did, so I lied and pushed her away. I took the coward’s way out and I broke her heart. Little did I know, I sentenced the rest of my days to an internal prison of hell.
I now find myself at a crossroads with the blonde beauty before me once more. And she still takes my breath away. Life just keeps on torturing me…
I’ve never believed in second chances, but I’d give anything for one with her.
One thing Rose Riley is proud of: standing up for what she believes in while living her best life kindly.
One thing she’s not so proud of: whacking a man on the head with her handmade sign at an animal rights march.
Devoted single dad Dane Madden knows he hurt Neely in the worst way. He’s got a lot to make up for. And as passionate as their reconnection is, it’s a lot to hope for.
