Meet Maxine Williams, a dedicated doctor with three great kids, a challenging career, and the perfect new man in her life. Her only problem? Her irresistibly charming, utterly infuriating ex-husband, a.k.a., the...ROGUE.
For Maxine Williams, being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dot-com entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband first his work, and then his never-ending quest for fun kept him constantly on the move, far away from Maxine and his family. For five years, Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with shared homes, a summer yacht, and three children they both adore. Blake gets to keep his globe-trotting lifestyle - dating a succession of beautiful, famous and very young women - while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a world-renowned expert on childhood trauma. Then, everything changes . . .
For Maxine, it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not - mature, grounded, and present. For Blake, it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes, and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter. Now, Blake wants Maxine in his life again - as a partner in a humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For Maxine, the choice is clear. But Blake's sudden transformation - from carefree playboy to compassionate, responsible grownup - raises questions she's never managed to answer . . . and some she's afraid to ask. After all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life and almost certain that Blake Williams, a.k.a. the Rogue, is a man of capable doing anything - except change ...Or is he?
An unforgettable story of two people pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is a journey of choices, second chances, and the amazing opportunities that come together - just when life seems to to be falling apart.
