A modern take on the classic Pride & Prejudice premise.
Model, Elle Benedict is young, beautiful and headstrong. When she overhears billionaire, William Dexter insulting her integrity, it leaves her deep attraction to him in tatters.
As William stumbles over himself to repair the damage, he pursues her intensely, and begins to draw her into his private world. They embark on a relationship, consumed by love and desire, awakening feelings neither had experienced before.
But not everything is perfect. Jealousy and misunderstandings allow a so-called friend to seek out the cracks in their relationship and use them to manipulate and interfere, intent on ruining a little boy’s life before he has even drawn a breath.
Seven years of euphoria to the depths of a dark abyss of pain awaits them.
Their journey is a carefully woven story thread of murder, paternity, jealous lovers and family members, and misunderstandings.
Can their love be rekindled?
