Anger at Clayton, her new boss, causes Penny to snap out of the lethargy she's experienced after seeing her husband killed. She puts to use all her innate abilities, learned skills, and intuitiveness to cope with the overbearing Clayton and the women in his life. Penny, in time, knows she loves him, but she will not become one of his women-not on his terms.
On her terms, they marry, only to be parted by federal agents before they leave their wedding reception. The ensuing intrigue, danger, and antics of Clayton's ex-wife and her cohorts play a part in Penny being in imminent peril. Their love for one another is once again threatened by a letter from a vindictive woman who is dead.
How Clayton and Penny find their happy-ever-after is both a breath-holding adventure and a breathtaking love story.
