A Reluctant Angel
Progressive Properties has taken a very aggressive stance in parts of New York City, having big plans to develop where once small neighbors flourished. Now Angelique's Shelter, St. Gabriel's, is under attack and nothing could be more surprising then who showed up at her door to deliver the news. John McDougal, now a prominent property lawyer, and once love of her life, who broke her heart into a million pieces.
John never meant to hurt her. Hiding from a past filled with pain, John did what he thought necessary to help those that he loved, a decision that left him utterly alone. Events have come into play that he cannot stop but he hoped he could, at the very least, play damage control, not wanting Angelique to be hurt further.
Discovered by John and his brother Michael, behind St. Joseph the Worker church when she was just a teen, Angelique still remembers nothing of her past. Raised by Rev. O'Bryan, Angelique has grown into a champion for the weak and downtrodden. Once her mortgage is called due, and her funding is cut she finds she is in real danger of losing the Shelter, forever.
But something even bigger underlies these events. And those that Angelique loves are in the most danger. A stranger has reveled himself at just the right time. His task? To get Angelique to remember who she really is before all is lost.
