Shattered by the loss of her youthful innocence after a sexual assault, St. Louis beauty salon owner Honey Love has spent the last nine years hiding her pain beneath a frigid exterior. But all that changes when private investigator Jay Andrews walks into her life--and awakens a passion she never dreamed existed. Still, Honey is haunted by the fear that Jay will discover what she feels is her disgrace, and she ends their relationship. It a decision that will send Jay reeling--and set off a shocking chain of events.
Distraught by Honey's rejection, a drunken Jay tries to quell his heartache with a one-night encounter with Kendra Johnson, a woman he's crossed paths with before. Seven months later, just when Jay has resolved to win back Honey's heart, Kendra appears on his doorstep. This time she is pregnant with his baby, and set on becoming his wife. But while Jay will do right by his child, Honey is the woman he loves. Realizing that Jay will never be hers, Kendra pursues a path of revenge that could destroy everything, and everyone, that means anything to him. The result is a crisis that will require all of Jay's personal courage and professional skill--and just may force Honey to admit her love--and reveal one last wrenching secret.
