'Anastasia has her life firmly under control. She has a fiance, Hugh, who loves her, and a career that's going places, in one of the best cities in the world. Things are...nice. Stable. Secure. And nothing like the tempestuous years she remembers when her parents' celebrated, notorious romance was still aflame. Then Anastasia's fiance's best friend, David Black, returns to Seattle after years of living overseas. David recognizes Anastasia's stunted, hibernating soul, and is appalled. Even though digging up the truth about Anastasia's family history will cause pain, David is determined to coax Anastasia's true nature out of dormancy. But if Anastasia reverts to her real character, marriage to Hugh will become impossible, and David's best friend will be hurt. And if David doesn't succeed in setting Anastasia's soul free, then he will lose his own chance at winning her heart.'
