At 15, Rayen Vasu is a free-spirited young girl. But after being involved in several life-changing events, she grows into a cold, calculating, and callous young woman. As the years pass, she protects herself by fending off any and all intimate situations. She has no time for love or anything else that has to do with relationships, not even with Margaret and Angela Taylor, the only family that she has left. She ultimately travels to Michigan to assist in the restructuring of her father's declining company.
There she meets two men who change her life forever. First is the charming architect Joshua Manning who gives her something no other man has dared to attempt. For the very first time, she experiences feelings she never imagined possible.
Then there is the forceful, ambitious detective Blake Pierce. He pursues Rayen, trying to win her over. But she has a secret that could ruin his future in law enforcement in a way he would never suspect. The last thing she needs is a detective in her immediate circle.
