Melodye Carter thought romantic love was out of the question for her again. Beautiful, plus-sized, dress designer and boutique shop owner for the plus-sized woman, she is blessed. She has twins and is widowed by a man who was murdered under circumstances that left her afraid for her own life. Her marriage had gone from ecstasy to savagery. Now she has sworn off love and intends to spend the rest of her life healing from her wounds, nurturing her children and building her thriving business. Then she meets a man who makes it known he wants no ties and no romantic entanglements while she soon finds herself feeling far more than she wants to feel.

Jim Ryman has devoted himself to his job as a detective lieutenant. He cannot shake the anguish of feeling that he caused the death of his pregnant wife. He feels he made a terrible husband and would have made a poor father. Now he devotes himself to his narrow world and bitterly resents it when he begins to work on Melody's late husband's cold case and finds himself deepy drawn to her and her twins. She and the charming twins grip his heart and he can't help but wonder if life could offer a second chance for him.

Then there's Lucia, Melodye's gorgeous, supermodel, superthin sister, Lucia, who with their mother never lets her forget they don't consider "plus-sized" beautiful. All her life she has lived in Lucia's shadow. Lucia who has everything and soon sets her cap for Jim. The supermodel believes in pulling out all the stops and lets Melodye know she has a fight on her hands. But Melodye finds she has a firmer backbone than she thought and for the first time in her life, she fights back.
