There's a little bit of James Bond and Lucy Liu in all of us. It just takes some of us longer to find them. Rae Shields is shy and attractive, and one big walking contradiction. Stoic, yet humorous, she struggles to overcome an abusive childhood and a plethora of phobias. An aversion to touch leaves her afraid she'll never experience the pleasure of sex. Believing she's insane, she creates a world where everything is ordered, disciplined, and calm. And, it works, until she meets Tyler. Handsome and mysterious, Attorney Tyler Blazer is a well-known, widely controversial associate of the Cabani crime family. With a reputation for being aloof, he's dubbed the Ice Man. But, when he crosses paths with Rae, he's no longer the cool, dashing playboy he once was. Falling fast, he wants to stay away, but he can't. He's been ordered to kill her. His life becomes a complicated web of deceit as he tries to buy time, and keep Rae from finding out the truth. Tired of being a victim, Rae finds her Lucy Liu in the nick of time with Tyler's love giving her the strength she needs to fight back. With him, she finds hope.
