(From the publisher):
Superior Court Judge Lawrence Bishop III finds his job tedious unlike his father who loved his profession. Only for the sake of pleasing his mother, Babe, is Ren at the bench today. Moreover, it is because of Babe’s dream to have her son run for Senator that Ren asks an old friend, Bo Lester, who happens to be a private investigator, to find Jewel, the woman Ren had a one-night stand with two years ago.
The information Bo discovers lands a punch in Ren’s gut. Jewel was actually a married woman by the name of Julia Carsten Hovant and she died in a speedboat accident. The revelation that totally floors Ren is that Julia gave birth to a child who may just be result of Ren and Julia’s one-night stand. The fifteen-month old boy is now being raised by his maternal aunt, Sara Carsten.
Since Ren has not been approached by Sara – or Julia – in all this time, technically he realizes he is free to consider the door closed on that chapter of his life as far as his or rather, his mother’s political aspirations are concerned. However, his conscience bothers him and the need for closure drives him to approach Sara Carsten to find out once and for all if the child is indeed his.
What he will do if the boy is his, he doesn’t know. What he finds is a serene woman caring for a delightful child. He comes face to face with a strong attraction for Sara that rocks his world off its axis. Yet, in the face of the career that is mapped out for him, and his existing engagement to television news reporter, Eve Masterson, can this mind-blowing attraction survive?
