There must be some terrible mistake. Kira Douglas, an
investigative reporter for the Atlanta Observer,
wants to be the kidney donor for her dear mother who's on
dialysis and quickly running out of time. But the lab
results come back, once again, with the same results. Not
only are they not a match, they aren't even blood
relatives. Kira is not her mother's biological daughter. If
she isn't Kira Douglas, who is she? More important, who
would save her mother? Kira contacts a friend, a former
police lieutenant who's opened a small investigative
agency, for help. Kira has hope -- it's all she has.
They find a name -- Leigh Howard, a woman born at the same
hospital within a few minutes of Kira who looks remarkably
like her mother. Leigh, who grew up a lonely child, is an
Atlanta socialite whose family is prominent and wealthy.
Her late grandfather was principal owner and president of a
large conglomerate. Leigh survived a car accident that took
her parents' lives. She watched them die as she struggled
to live. Now some reporter has brought it all back again.
Someone wants part of her family's legacy. Just like her ex-
husband; like her former fiancé. Surely her good friend Max
will know what to do.
Max Payton grew up in the foster care system. Now as the
attorney for Leigh and her entire fortune, he owes his
success and all he has to her late grandfather, the only
man who ever believed in him. Max will do his best to help
Leigh sort everything out. But Max does not bargain for the
strong attraction he feels when first meeting Kira Douglas --
and she for him. Time is running out and storm clouds of
danger roll in through the investigation. It's getting
ugly. It's getting deadly.
