Francesca Hairston, known as "Frankie" to her friends at the prestigious women's college where she works, is set to testify at the trial of a handyman accused of committing a series of violent crimes around campus. Because the accused doesn't resemble her own attacker, Frankie decides to hire a private investigator to do some digging. Although she's convinced that there's more to the case than meets the eye, what she doesn't expect to unearth is her long-dormant romantic passion.
Private detective Nelson Santiago is reluctant to take on a case involving an ongoing police investigation. Having sworn off women since his divorce, he is surprised to find that he's attracted to Frankie Hairston and agrees to take her case. What he doesn't count on is the emotional intensity and physical danger they both encounter in stalking Frankie's mysterious assailant.
