Curvy Melodye Carter runs a successful boutique dedicated to plus-sized beauties. The widow and mother of twin boys also has serious troubles. Her husband's mysterious death has been linked to another shooting, and now she's more than grief stricken...she's a little afraid.
Detective Jim Ryman is drawn into her case, and soon Melodye and her mischievous boys are reawakening feelings he'd sworn off after his wife's death. He didn't think he could love again, but proud yet vulnerable Melodye makes him remember what it means to be a man in love--a man who will risk everything to protect his woman.
