After seven years of marriage, Paris Simmons-Holyfiend and her husband, Andrew, are still childless. Now Paris wants to adopt orphaned nine-year-old Jasmine Noble. Trouble is, Jasmine's in the custody of ex-stripper Gabrielle Mercedes. Andrew is vehemently against the idea - as is Paris' father, a powerful politician. The only man to even dare be on Paris' side is shady Darius Connors, who has his own reasons for helping the beautiful, vulnerable Paris. She wonders why her loved ones are so opposed to the adoption...but the truth is far darker than Paris imagines.
