Convicted at nineteen of a brutal crime he did not commit, Rico Zanini survived ten years in prison because of a driving need to seek revenge against the juror who could have set him free. Mary Beth Hunter, an eighteen-year-old with the face of a Madonna, fiery red hair and a body that cried out to him to take her, had stirred his passion. For ten years, he hated her as much as he craved her.
Finally freed through The Innocence Project, Rico sets out to find Mary Beth and make her suffer the way he had. Mary Beth is now a successful attorney. They agree they have differences to settle, but their passion overshadows their best intentions.
With nothing in common but anger and insatiable desire, Rico makes Mary Beth's body sing as no other man ever has. But is passion enough to make Rico forget the past and give them a chance at love?
