When a child placed in foster care is harmed, the head of the child welfare agency Veronica Overton is publicly criticised by children's advocate Schyler Henderson. With her reputation in ruins, Veronica sets out to rebuild her life. Yet her search uncovers her own family secrets and ingnites a smouldering attraction to Schyler that she is determined to resist. Schyler's traumatic childhood inspired his desire to help children. When he discovers that Veronica is a caring woman, he is determined to help clear her name - and even the conflict between them cannot calm their lust.--This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.
