Life is never easy when you suffer through a marriage that was based on one person solely loving and protecting the other. This is what Caroline Peters has come to realize—unfortunately, it took fifty-three of her years on Earth to figure that out.
Throwing off the shackles of her failed marriage, Caroline tries to escape the misery and torment her ex-husband, Mark, has put her through, only to find herself thrown back into a pit of self-doubt and despair at his careless antics with questionable women.
His latest incident not only throws her for a spin, but threatens the reputation of the company they not only both work for, but helped build.
Sensing a need for a knight-in-shining-armor, twenty-five-year-old Gabriel Jimenez comes to Caroline’s rescue. He’s been waiting for the right time to express how he really feels about her, and Mark’s slip-up provides him with the perfect opportunity to do just that.
Struggling with her own insecurities, while fighting frightening feelings that have lied dormant inside of her for Gabriel, Caroline is given a choice to continue holding back from the happiness and pleasure life can bring, or giving in to her desires and allowing herself to finally live.
Together, with Gabriel’s help, Caroline will discover that age can sometimes truly just be nothing more than a number, and all that supposedly glitters is not necessarily gold—hidden treasures are usually more priceless.
