Growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina was a joy. Her parents, Lemuel and Mildred Hodge, provided her with many fantastic opportunities like eight years of private school, piano lessons that started at the age of five, chances to visit large libraries, trips to the movies with her Mom and brother, Ed, travel experiences, a church that made sure she understood her faith, and parents and a grandmother who paid attention to everything that would help her forge a path to a successful life.

Playing recklessly with love is a dangerous game.
Most people who have known Zackary Tyler Belford for any length of time see nothing more for him than a path leading to destruction. Not even his handsome face, a Harvard Law degree, or limitless wealth can bypass the shattered heart and broken soul of the man-child still held captive by the abuse, accusations, and mistreatment he experienced as a child. Breaking hearts and taking numbers is his MO… a dangerous game of cat and mouse that could very well be his demise. As his life spirals out of control, Zack desperately seeks something to grab… to cling to… as he struggles hopelessly to avoid an inevitable fall… but will he find what he needs in time?
Derek Wellington had his life set. He was born into wealth, graduated with honors from Harvard Law, and since high school, knew he would marry the beautiful Morgan LaRue. However, somewhere along the way, everything he thought he knew about himself, about Morgan, and even about life itself will boggle his mind, and catapult him into a world of betrayal, deception, and confusion. Somewhere in this darkness, he must search for The Light to find his way out of a maze that, if he fails, will destroy his heart and soul forever.
