Erik's distant attitude toward his daughter, because of his own disturbed childhood, makes him difficult to take to as a hero. However, the story will intrigue you, and the reference to Solomon is quite clever.

After her husband Jesse dies, Kathryn Pierson yields to a passionate encounter with Erik Solomon at the same time she is artificially inseminated.

When Erik returns to Garnet Falls eight years later, the attraction between him and Kathryn is strong. Things are complicated when Erik encounters her twins, Kyle and Virginia. He knows instinctively that the children are his own. But how closely is Kathryn willing to let Erik share in her children's life?
