Witty, sharply-observed, and warmly wise, Nita Brooks' debut novel tells the heartfelt story of a suddenly successful single mother who finds her perfectly-designed, fame-bound life upended by a surprise from the past . . .

It wasn't easy for Yvonne Cable to get over a heartbreaking relationship and revamp her life. But now the once-broke single mom is Atlanta's most sought-after interior designer-and one-half of the media's hottest power couple. She and her celebrity fiancé, Nathan, are a perfect, practical match, on-and off-camera. And with their new home improvement reality show the object of a fierce network bidding war, there's no limit to how far they can go . . .

But Yvonne is stunned when mogul Richard Barrington III unexpectedly makes an offer for their program. He's the man she thought left her for a more successful woman. And he's the father of her son-though he didn't know it until now. Richard wants to get to know their boy, and Yvonne agrees, though she's wary. Yet little by little, she's finding it hard to resist the responsible, caring man Richard has become. But when a scandalous leak puts everything Yvonne's worked for at risk, she'll have to look beyond surfaces to come to terms with who she is-and discover what she truly wants.
