Sin, sex, obsession—and murder.
More than anything in the world, Camryn Bruce wants a child—a desire so strong it ruined her marriage. But she never dreamed that child might come as a result of her friend Holly’s brutal and mysterious death.
Three years ago Holly assigned guardianship of her new born daughter, Kylie, to Camryn. Or did she?
There are those who say no, that the rash and irresponsible Holly made a mistake. They deny Camryn has any custody rights to the beautiful little girl. Each of them want Kylie for their own reasons. Kylie’s powerful billionaire grandfather wants to gift her to his young unstable wife. Kylie’s arrogant and emotionally remote stepfather, who’s been a father to Kylie for the past two years, believes the child belongs with him. Then there’s the little girl’s charmingly immoral and financially desperate biological father, who sees his daughter as a money machine. They all want Kylie and each will use their particular resources to get her, from lawyers, to sex, money, and sultry promises. They all claim to love Kylie . . .
But Camryn is smart, fierce and no man’s fool. She won’t be bought and she won’t be seduced—even though she does find herself attracted to one of her adversaries.
Camryn would give her life to protect Kylie from a future without genuine love. And she well may have to, when one of Kylie’s would-be guardians decides the shortest route to the child is over Camryn’s dead body.
