Determined to find out what really happened, Skye meets Congressman Darren Birch, a black conservative who is charming, good-looking, and seemingly honest. Darren and Skye are very attracted to each other, but Skye can't dismiss evidence that points to his involvement in nefarious deeds. By the time she finally decides to believe in him, it's almost too late. Winters' latest winning romance is filled with politics, scandal, and intrigue, making for a compelling read.
