Independent Wife

From a New York Times–bestselling author, a classic romance about an estranged couple reunited in the workplace and discovering new desire.

When her husband walked out on her, Sallie Jerome Baines started her life over. No longer was she the homebody who only wanted to settle down to married life. Instead, she dove into her career, becoming a reporter for one of America’s leading magazines. Finally, she had found a sense of self, a way of living that made her happy again. Until the day she discovers Rhys is her new boss—and her hard-won independence is put to the test. Much to her surprise, Sallie realizes that despite everything, she still wants her handsome husband. Almost as much as he still wants her. Only this time, Sallie isn’t playing for keeps. At least, that’s the plan. . . .
