Gloria is a widow, charming and beautiful, and ready to rediscover not only her ability to love and be loved, but her talents as a smart, successful woman with much to offer. Very soon, she will find not one, but three very handsome men vying for her attention, and in the most unlikely of places.
Henri, a Haitian ex-patriot whom Gloria teaches English, returns to his homeland under the guise of reestablishing a democratic government and convinces Gloria to join him and start a school for abandoned children.
Forty years after their first kiss, former high-school jock turned businessman Mickey calls and wants back into her life, and he’ll follow her to Port au Prince to prove it.
And in Haiti, retired Senator Lance Carter, chief of the Relief Commission, arrives to oversee earthquake reconstruction efforts—and before too long finds an intense attraction to Gloria that he can’t let go.
Amid the rubble, the crumbling buildings, the aftershocks, and the tremors ravaging the poorest island in the Western Hemisphere, the biggest surprises are what Gloria discovers about the men so determined to be part of her life. Intrigue, ambition, deceit, and patriotism clash amid the love and laughter in Gloria’s new life.
