Genesis Press Indigo, March 2005
Lawyer, DeAndra Blake has loved Judge Damon
Kessler since she was a fifteen year old caught for loitering
and truancy. He was
the young, handsome and idealistic legal aid attorney who took
her case and stayed in her life to inspire her to bigger and
better things. Having
forced Damon to see her as a desirable woman during his
tempestuous relationship with a supermodel, she faces the fact
that Damon will never love her the way he loves Imani.
Completing her law degree, she moves to Chicago.
In Washington for a human rights
summit, Judge Damon Kessler is stunned to see DeAndra Blake, a
lifetime friend whom he feels he has wronged.
He spends a lot of time trying to talk to her and
apologize before he realizes that his feelings and motivation
probably involve more than he’d imagined.
With neither of them willing to act on their powerful
attraction, they go their separate ways at the end of the sumit.
Damon returns Detroit, a stalker has trashed his home.
He accepts a friend’s offer of a home in Chicago to lay
low while giving the police time to identify the culprit.
In a neighborhood deli, he encounters a frightened
DeAndra, who is apparently being threatened for asking too many
questions about a child who has disappeared.
Damon offers her shelter, and things heat up while they
investigate the mystery and their feelings.
