Psychologist Angel Mackie suffered a broken heart 10 years ago and has kept her dreams of marriage and family at bay. But a vacation to Jamaica changes everything.

James Samuels has suffered guilt for far too long. He's the one who broke Angel's heart—by cheating on her while they were engaged. He's still in love with her and is about to get the chance he needs to reaffirm his love—and also to prove to her that she still loves him.

Angel's vacation is a nightmare. She witnesses a gang murder and is the victim of brutal violence. Her best friend hides her in the mountains with the oldest Rastafarian tribe in Jamaica. There she meets 5-year-old Hildi, who believes that Angel is her mother. As a result of amazing circumstances, Angel is allowed to adopt her, and this brings James back into her life.

This book is fast-paced and filled with danger and powerful emotions certain to penetrate readers' hearts. James shows patience, deep love and a strong protective nature while he tries to win Angel back. Angel grows dramatically, realizing her life isn't all she thought it was, and the love that she and Hildi feel for each other is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Angelique writes a stunning story.
