Years ago Valerie and Alexander had a fiery relationship, but their love was torn asunder by Alexander's meddling father. Alexander's and Valerie's paths have crossed again, and Valerie is finding that time doesn't heal all wounds: Alexander still holds a grudge, and seems hell-bent on ruining her. Unbeknownst to him, Valerie was pregnant when she left him, and now has a son. Alexander takes this as further proof of her betrayal, and the chances the reconciliation Valerie hopes for seem nonexistent. Can Valerie mend bridges with Alexander, or will secrets and simmering resentments extinguish their love?
