A bout of rheumatic fever left Rosalinda "Sammy" Samuels in need of a new heart. Three years ago she received it-and her vagabond sister's three children to raise. On a rare day to herself, Sammy meets Ted and dares to wonder if he could be The One...until she learns of his distaste of children...and transplants. Ted Benay lost his sister in a car accident, but his parents gave away her heart. The loss has haunted Ted ever since. Because of her death, Ted questions God. Now he's opened his apartment to his brother's unruly, disrespectful family, and Ted's pretty sure he never wants such a thing for himself. When he meets Sammy, though, his deepest convictions and opinions are challenged. Can it be for the better? Sammy's new heart gives her a second chance at life. But has it also stolen her only chance of love?
