It's a man's world. That's what I've been raised to believe. By wolves. Like the ones in those fairy tales, except my story has never ended happily ever after. Until then--having love in my life is like having dessert after a Sunday, soul food dinner--it's there, it's tempting, but I just don't have the room."
Determined to revive her humdrum life once she moves to Houston, thirty-two year old March Anne Terrebonne turns her career corporate, ditches the SUV for a trendy Mercedes and buys her own gated-community dream house. The only thing left unchanged is her habit for attracting "bad boys." That is--until the illustrious Kress Tyler Jordan walks into her life. Besides, bad boys don't wear designer suits. Or do they?
Patrick Greene is ideal--charming, sexy, intelligent--but off-limits. The pair has always had each other back during a few futile relationships, until March decides to keep hers with Kress a secret. When Kress's behavior becomes dangerously possessive, March reluctantly confides in Patrick, then questions his loyalty when he refuses to stick by her. To further complicate their friendship, Patrick opens up by confessing his own dark secret.
March quickly finds herself on shaky ground. With faith, friendship and future--all at stake, she soon discovers that fixin' her life means facing her tormented past and forgiving the ones to blame. But, is the pain just too great?
