Legend says when the Flame of Aphrodite is given and received with love, it will bless two souls with everlasting passion. Legend also says the infamous diamond can bring misery, obsession and death. SPENSER CHANNING knows nothing about the legend of the Flame but he does know when someone needs help. When he finds a woman on his ranch—battered, bruised and near death—with a fortune in diamonds hidden beneath her clothing, a bracelet bearing the name 'REESA', and no recollection of who she is, his natural instincts take over and he vows to protect her. Frightened by memories she doesn't understand, afraid she has committed a horrible crime, REESA BEAUMONT fights her growing love for Spenser but dangers greater than forgotten memories await her, dangers made of flesh and bone and an obsession for the Flame.
