Rayne Doe (aka Nevetta Yardley) is a beautiful black woman who is found on the road by Dr Lance Carey. Nevetta cannot remember who she is, where she came from and why she was lying on the road. She is attracted to and cares very much for Lance the man who saved her and brought her to his clinic so she could receive the very best medical care.
Dr Lance Carey names her Rayne Doe as she suffers from amnesia and cannot remember anything about herself. Lance is very attracted to Nevetta but he cannot tell if his feelings are returned. Whilst feeling this strong attraction to Nevetta, he is currently dating Ariel Hawes. This is the major reason why he cannot pursue a relationship with Nevetta because he is not a free man and, therefore, he dares not engage in a new relationship, until he is no longer tethered to Ariel.
In order to express their hidden emotions for each other, they have to deal with the barriers to their relationship. Lance has to remove Ariel from his life. This will not prove easy to do because Ariel is a bitter vindictive woman who does not really love Lance but wants him for his money and prestige. Nevetta has to deal with the possibility that she may already be a married woman with a husband and children who care for and need her. She may have a boyfriend beside himself searching for her. How can she give into her feelings for Lance when there is so much uncertainty about who she is?
Lance and Nevetta reach out to grasp a love that could be taken away from them at any moment if Nevetta’s memory returns and confirms who she really is. The enemy is her memory! If it returns, Nevetta could be taken away from Lance and neither of them want that. Nevetta wants to remember who she is, in order that she can love Lance freely. Lance is afraid that the return of her memory could be the end of their relationship because their love may not be strong enough to survive full disclosure of who she might truly be!
An enjoyable read!
