'Chantelle is a successful lawyer who has achieved all of her goals, and yet still feels as if there is something missing in her life. Is it a dog? she often wonders.
'Adopting a canine companion leads her to a chance meeting with Branson and his nephew Ethan. Branson is a cosmetic surgeon, who seeks to adopt the young Ethan after his parents were killed in a car accident.
'In stark contrast to her successes, there is an undercurrent of darkness to Chantelle's life, and a terrible secret that plagues her memory like an unwelcome shadow, until a blossoming romance with Branson eventually helps her to overcome her deepest phobias and fears.'
