First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby...

Well, that's the way it's supposed to happen, but it doesn't always.

Gideon First has finally found the woman of his dreams. He's asked Lupe Amorado to marry him, and she's said yes. What he hasn't anticipated is the call from a lawyer with an invitation to take a paternity test. It seems Gideon's ex-girlfriend, recently killed in a car accident, had his baby, without ever telling him.

The First Family is no different. Kerry Durgan, née First, is an alcoholic who has sold her share of the family ranch to a Houston bank for untold millions, thereby destroying a heritage that goes back more than 170 years.

It's been nineteen years since Kerry ditched Craig Robeson at their high school prom, yet he's still attracted to her. Perhaps because of his own flawed background, he sees the pain behind her bravado.
