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 . . .

Rogue

Being 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 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 friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore. Blake enjoys 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 and adolescent suicide. 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 grown-up-- 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, about to marry Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, aka the Rogue, is a man capable of doing anything--except change....

An unforgettable story of two people pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is a journey of choices and the amazing opportunities that come together--just when life seems to have been successfully rearranged at last.

This is an average story that is neither inspiring or discouraging. It in in not way spectacular and my life would have been just as rich without every hearing this story about this divorced couple with three children who end up remarrying.
