With her career as an artist finally taking off and her social life in full swing, Collette Jenkins is happier than ever--until just weeks before the holidays when a letter that's been lost in the mail arrives. Still reeling from the stunning news that the only family she ever knew is not her family at all, Collette heads for the Miami home where she was raised, and comes face-to-face with another specter of her childhood--her first love, Dexter Harris. Vowing to uncover the secrets of her past, Collette turns to the one man who offers friendship and support--and makes her heart race with hope for the future.
Now divorced and a college basketball coach, Dexter can't help but remember that he gave up Collette once before--and he won't stand idly by when she's determined to find her true family. Convincing her that celebrating Kwanzaa might give her newfound courage will be tough. But Dexter will do whatever it takes--especially when he realizes the season's message of love is the best gift he can give.
