Melany believes that the baby she was told died in the car accident she was involved in is still alive. Ryan, her ex lover, agrees it is possible. Although he is a bit reluctant to get involved with Melany again, he helps her to try and uncover the truth.


This is a complicated plot. The story begins slowly, and it is hard to unravel what is supposed to be going on to get a picture of the plotline.


However the book does improve and the pace picks up.

The story leads to a baby and toddler adoption scam of really nasty proportions. It is a bit unbelievable, yet strange things do happen.


The hero and heroine are good and gel well together, and it soon becomes clear that it will be hard for them to stay merely ex lovers. Passion smoulders between them, and the electric current that steams between them is powerful and exciting for the reader.


It is hard to work out who the bad guy is as the plot is littered with them, and dead bodies do appear rather uncomfortably often. As a reader I began to suspect everyone apart from Melany and Ryan. There are a lot of characters too. Sometimes it is hard to separate one from the other. The medical characters seemed very similar at times.


Melany makes a very protective mother, and I felt a great sympathy with her. She is a very strong and well developed character.


Debra Webb is a good author, and this is a book worth reading. The passion alone makes for a terrific romance.

The reader will want this pair to get together again as they are made for each other.
