I met a man, a wonderful man. He kissed me, touched me like no other man ever has. I think I've fallen in love. What am I going to do about it?
That's the dilemma confronting Keely Preston upon meeting dashing Congressman Dax Devereaux. The attraction between them was like a lightning strike - hot and unexpected. But also terribly inconvenient. Keely is in Washington D.C. to appeal to a congressional committee on behalf of families of soldiers Missing In Action. Serving on that committee is Dax. Both are under close scrutiny. What has sparked between them is difficult to keep secret.
After twelve years of living in limbo, married but alone, Keely is reawakened to desire by Dax's passion. But he also touches her heart, where she has preserved the sweet memory of her husband. One love represents her past; another her future. Will clinging to one mean having to sacrifice the other?
