Michelle Toussaint, a news broadcaster, is on a roll. She's just earned a promotion and has been given an assignment that will make her an elite in broadcast journalism. And, the love of her life wants to repair their broken relationship. For the first time in her life, she's found harmony between her personal and professional lives. Then, her success is snatched away and she finds herself in an endless nightmare.

Architect Anthony Hilliard has always loved Michelle. He can't believe his good luck when she agrees to a new beginning. Yet, they've just reunited when problems begin. She had never forgiven his uncle for financially ruining her father, but she now seems to be on a personal crusade to ruin his uncle with her special reports on crime in the urban community. Believing Michelle has matured enough to not allow her feelings for his uncle come between them, Anthony now wonders if it was just wishful thinking.

This is a brilliant expos of the dark secrets that lurk in the gutters and spires of a southern metropolis, complete with murder, passion, spine-tingling suspense and-best of all-love. Sweet, glorious, triumphant love! (Nov., 343 pp., $4.99)
