Sequel to The Contest...
With the evil Hugh safely behind bars in Cyberia Prison, Eemay and Scott, the new Duke and Duchess of Candara, spend their eventful honeymoon on Cloud Nine, a tropical island in the Calibrian Ocean.
While there, a fortune teller predicts a forthcoming event that will change their lives forever, which Scott dismisses as scaremongering. While Eemay wants to believe him, the prediction continues to haunt her. Just when she had allowed herself to believe everything in her world had turned out so perfect, was it about to change, again?
On their return from honeymoon, the couple forge ahead with exciting new plans for Cyberia Palace. However, in due course and as predicted, everything in their world is rocked by a life shattering event, linked to a secret that Scott had vowed never to share with anyone, but which ultimately threatens to derail their marriage and leads to a web of lies and deceit.
Meanwhile, from his prison cell, the evil Hugh plans his dastardly revenge.
