Caroline Singleton is a talented, successful African-American artist who was raised in the lap of luxury in her affluent Chicago neighborhood. On her way to a promising second interview with an integrated marketing firm, she bumps into a man who takes her breath away, both literally and figuratively.
Brian Keenan is an Irish-American former cop from a middle-class background who is shocked by the immediate strong feelings Caroline invokes in him when they first meet. Unbeknownst to either of them, she is interviewing with his firm, a firm in which he is a senior partner.
Caroline is confused and terrified of the immediate strong connection she feels to this total stranger. It is not until after she accepts the job with his firm that she learns who Brian is. Because of impropriety, she refuses to have a relationship with him. She is also unsure because she has never dated anyone who wasn't African-American.
Brian, on the other hand, doesn't agree with her and wants to move full speed ahead with a relationship. He feels the same connection Caroline does and doesn't want to give up so easily on something so rare and beautiful.
Caroline soon encounters a bigger problem than her confusing and terrifying feelings for Brian, however. She is suddenly being stalked and she doesn't know by whom, nor does she know why. Being an ex-cop, Brian wants to help and protect the woman he already views as his soulmate and partner. Can Caroline let go of her misgivings long enough to trust him to help her and perhaps save her life?
