About the Author: Marlene Jones has been writing short stories, plays and poetry since age 8. She is currently working as an elementary school teacher and is recording a Jazz/Gospel album to be released early next year. She resides in Ontario, Canada with her three children. Twenty-six year old Nyah Parsons is smart, beautiful, confident and and in control of her world. She no longer believes in love and makes no room for it in her life. Her desire to forget her past and get a fresh start, leads her to a small town just outside of Detroit where she buys a new home, finds a new job and makes new friends. Everything is going great, until Mark enters her life. His demands on her heart shake her core foundation, threaten to reveal dark secrets she has kept hidden for years and expose her as a fraud.
