Progressive Properties is aggressively taking over where small neighborhoods once flourished. Now Angelique's Shelter, St. Gabriel's, is under attack. Who shows up at her door to deliver the news? John McDougal, now a prominent property attorney, and once love of her life, who broke her heart into a million pieces.
John never meant to hurt Angelique. Hiding from a past filled with pain, John did what was necessary to protect those he loved, a decision that left him utterly alone, but now he hopes to save the one he let get away.
Angelique is in danger of losing the shelter, forever, but something bigger underlies these events and those closest to Angelique are in danger. A stranger has come to reveal a secret about Angelique's past. To save those she loves she must remember who she is.
