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, aka the . . .
married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine.
Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake
Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dot-com
entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husbandâ€”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 friendly though infrequent visits, a
yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they
both adore. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyleâ€”dating
a succession of beautiful, famous, and very young
womenâ€”while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and
pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a
world-renowned expert on childhood trauma and adolescent
suicide. Then everything changesâ€¦.
For Maxine it
starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man
who is everything Blake is notâ€”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 againâ€”as a partner in a
humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For
Maxine the choice is clear. But Blakeâ€™s sudden
transformationâ€”from carefree playboy to compassionate,
responsible grown-upâ€”raises questions sheâ€™s never
managed to answer . . . and some sheâ€™s afraid to ask. After
all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life, about to marry
Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, aka the
Rogue, is a man capable of doing anythingâ€”except
An unforgettable story of two people
pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is
a journey of choices and the amazing opportunities that come
togetherâ€”just when life seems to have been successfully
rearranged at last.
