Can Rachel and James find their way back into each other’s hearts after tasting temptation and facing devastating news? How strong is love in the face of reality?
With an adoring patient saint of a husband, Rachel's 7 year marriage to James Conran has grown from great to incredibly blessed. But all Rachel has yearned for over the past 5 years is wanting a baby.
Everything else is perfect... well until she bumps into her sexy ex-lover, Daniel Ross. The Italian knows his way around women, and Rachel is disgusted at how tempted she is to spend time with him, in the name of her work, of course.
Realizing how desperate she has become to have a baby--she actually wonders if the unexplained infertility is not her fault, and if Daniel can get her pregnant--she takes matters into her own hands and decides to have further exploratory fertility tests. On the day she makes it clear to Daniel that she's not interested in anything he has to offer, she meets a beautiful pregnant red-head. As they become close friends the young woman offers Rachel a gift that will change many people's lives.
But her loving, patient husband has been withdrawing lately. Is it really his career or is there something he's not sharing with Rachel? Can they ever become a happy family? Is it too little too late? And where does Daniel come into all this?
Was he ready to love? Did he deserve her second chance?

When the shy, enigmatic bachelor asks for Olivia’s help with a special makeover and an infusion of confidence to woo a particular woman (unaware that she’s the one he’s after) she wants nothing to do with him. After all despite her generous nature to help everyone, she cannot risk getting closer to him.

THE OLDER GENERATION BROKE THEM APART…
Lia Abraham gave up everything for her family and culture—art, autonomy and even self-worth. Worst of all was the sacrifice of Bollywood-gorgeous, idealistic Devraj Shah, when Lia caved in to pressure from both their families. She broke her first love’s heart by marrying the “right” Jewish man.
THE YOUNGER GENERATION REUNITES THEM…
Nineteen years later, minutes after Lia demands a divorce from her cheating husband, her world turns upside down again; Devraj is at her door. His nephew and Lia’s feisty teenage daughter are repeating history. They’re in love, but the now reserved, enigmatic Devraj is dead-set against the couple’s marriage plans. He is convinced Lia’s daughter will ultimately reject his nephew the way Lia had rejected Devraj.
After years of feeling caged in a loveless marriage, Lia embraces her newly found freedom, and her resurgent passion for Devraj is irresistible. Once again, she surrenders to the true love of her life, but their affair re-ignites opposition from both families. Will Lia’s second chance at love again destroy her loved ones and her dreams?
Torn once again between her love for Devraj, her family responsibilities and her need for true independence, will Lia choose duty over the desires of her heart?
Stands Alone: Yes
What happens when a shy artist student meets the gregarious Bollywood gorgeous guy? Sparks fly and their families try to break them apart.
It’s love at first sketch for shy, sheltered art major Lia Abraham, when she meets the Bollywood-gorgeous Devraj Shah at a London university. But she refuses to show her undeniable attraction to the gregarious genius, who is being groomed for his family business empire. Nothing can stand between her and her dreams of traveling and teaching art across Europe. No taking risks or detours for Lia!
The last thing Lia needs is a handsome distraction from her true love: art. Although she protests, the charming Devraj, with his dimpled grin and sparkling eyes, convinces Lia to be “just friends”.
But inevitably—with one rain-soaked, sweet yet sizzling kiss—their unleashed desire becomes stronger than their cultural divides—a Hindu boy and a Jewish girl? Gods forbid!
As their friendship flares into an all-consuming passion, the growing pressure from both families changes the landscape of both their lives.
Despite loving him to distraction, will Lia’s gratitude to her frail grandparents, who raised her, and her loyalty to her cultural ties, force her to forsake the forbidden fruit of her love for Devraj?
Or can she stand up for her first and only love and face their uncharted future head on?
