Love can save the day. Fancy Taylor and Darius Jones are back in Morrison's third instalment in her beloved Taylor saga...With some high-profile legal trouble behind him and a promising NBA career ahead of him - plus his engagement to his spirited soul mate, the irrepressible Fancy Taylor - former playboy Darius Jones is back on top. But bad news soon threatens to take him right back down. If his HIV result received many years ago was a false negative, Darius may have infected countless women, including the now-pregnant Fancy. When Darius' wealthy stepfather falls gravely ill, the outcome leaves Darius' mother Jada in a deep depression - and deeply dependent on Candice, an opportunistic writer friend who has less than her best interests at heart. Worried about his mother - not to mention himself - Darius takes a time-out to go back home and care for her. There, thanks to Candice's nosiness - and negligence - he discovers the shocking truth about the secret he has been carrying. The discovery, along with the arrival of his biological father, Darryl, sends Darius on a mission that includes a revealing visit to an ex-lover...With their futures and their hearts on the line and storm clouds gathering, it may be hard to see the silver lining - but for Jada and Darryl, Fancy and Darius, it just might be love.
