Kate Pendleton found her erstwhile husband, J.D., in bed with another woman. In a single moment, all of her hopes were shattered. Furiously, Kate stormed out and grabbed the first likely looking man she found to exercise a little revenge. That guy turned out to be Wyatt Shaw, son of crime boss Dante D’Amato. Wyatt was gentle, kind and tender, much more than Kate could have hoped for. Emotionally shattered and confused, she left quickly the next morning - never knowing that she was already carrying Wyatt’s twin sons!

Years later, Kate falls in love with Jack McKinley, a man poised on the brink of divorce. Funny that Jack never seems to get around to divorcing his wife, Holly. Could they still love each other, even after all that they’ve endured?

Wyatt and Kate’s paths cross again, as fate would have it and Shaw is furious that he’s been denied being a part of the boys’ lives for nine long years. Shaw quickly realizes that his sons and Kate need protection from criminal elements, including his very own father and he shelters them at his private compound.

Is Wyatt strong and powerful enough to shelter Kate and his twin sons, Lucky and Chance? He never forgot that one incredible night with Kate so long ago. Could it be that it was as special for her as it was for him? The only way to find out is to risk everything - even while Kate’s supposedly dead husband closes in for the kill.
