Haunted from childhood by visions of a mysterious woman she calls, Blue Eyes, artist Samantha McBride is thrilled when a friend informs her that she’s seen a woman who bears the beautiful face she has immortalized on canvas and dreamed about for so long. Thrilled by the possibility that Blue Eyes might be a flesh and blood person, Samantha sets out to find her, certain the woman must be her destiny.
When Tess Richmond becomes aware that a private investigator has been hired to investigate her, she plans to teach the woman a lesson she won’t soon forget, never even suspecting the terrible mistake she’s about to make and the fragile heart she’ll decimate in the process.
Samantha’s first meeting with Tess ends in an act of heartbreaking cruelty that leaves her shattered, her faith in a beautiful destiny destroyed by Tess’ misplaced revenge and hatred of the father who abandoned her. When Tess realizes her mistake, she wants to make amends, but can she ever rebuild the trust that was lost, or the love that was denied?
