Has everybody lost their damned minds?
Harlem lawyer Marcus Kent fights for justice while preserving a stable, passionate marriage with wife, Toni. Smart and confident, he has it all together—that is until his world turns upside down.

On top of all of that, Toni’s renewed infertility obsession causes them to continually argue, adding more strain and cooling off their steamy union.
Struggling with insecurities and yearning to have a child, successful psychologist Toni Kent looks to her husband for support. Unfortunately, relentless distraction and stubbornness prevent Marcus from being there when she needs him the most and jeopardizes their happy home.
After multiple failed in vitro attempts, Toni is ready to try again, but Marcus is done. He doesn’t want another headache or more heartache.
Will a baby-making impasse tear this dream couple apart?
From the author of My Way to You, a new novel about keeping the flames of love and passion burning in a world determined to snuff them out.

Chapter 3 – Can You go Somewhere?
Once inside the dimly-lit waiting room, Regina stopped. Her stomach fluttered at the sight of Simon leaning against the reception desk with his long, crossed legs extending from his full-length black coat.
He glanced from his phone and smiled. “Ready?”
“I thought you left.” Simon reached for her coat and held it in the air.
His arms enveloped her as she stepped into it. “I told you I would wait.” He slid his hands over her shoulders and down her arms.
Regina trembled at his touch. “Indeed, you did.” She turned her head. Their lips almost touched and for a moment, time and her breath stood still. She lifted her lids; a slight redness blushed behind his light freckles. She’d never noticed them before. They invited her to smooth her lips across them. She concentrated on buttoning her coat before she gave into the temptation to do so as well as bite his luscious bottom lip. “Where’s Jeremy?”
“We’ll not have the honor of Mr. Stack’s company tonight.” Regina cast her gaze down and smiled. Simon leaned closer; the smell of his cologne drifted into her nose and titillated her already stimulated senses. “It’s just us. I hope that’s okay.” The promised mischievousness twinkling in his gorgeous angular eyes sent a charge of excitement down her spine.
She swallowed the lump in her throat. “I’m fine with that.” She quaked at the feel of his hand against the small of her back. She managed to appear composed despite the craving burgeoning inside her.
He raised his hand towards the door and tilted his head. “Let’s go.”
