During a routine meeting to discuss the welfare of one of her students, Mia is introduced to Dr Cayd Donnelly, a man so devastatingly attractive that she almost forgot to say no when he asked her out - despite her loyalty to her long term boyfriend, Eric.
Shortly after, the usually predictable Mia becomes anything but. The change in her behaviour delights Eric, but concerns her best friend Louise when she stops signing while they talk.
After a month of worry and frustration, Mia finally seeks professional help in a bid to discover why she is missing chunks of her memory.
From there, she discovers something about herself that is so life altering, things will never be the same for Mia again...

Mia greeted them all warmly, shaking their hands in turn. When the psychiatrist took her hand, her breath caught, the simple touch sending a warmth up her arm that both confused and elated her.
“Cayd Donnelly,” he stated, his voice a soft rumble that seemed to curl through her body via her ears. He smiled at her, their hands staying connected for longer than was normal in a professional setting as his thumb moved over the back of her hand in an absent-minded caress.
As if suddenly realising what he was doing, Dr. Donnelly gave Mia a short nod before he released her hand and stepped back. The swift movement managed to dislodge his dark hair so it fell forward slightly and caught the corner of his hazel eyes, causing him to reach a graceful hand up to brush it into its rightful place.
Mia stared at him, unable to tear her eyes away. When she’d imagined the man she was going to meet this morning, she had pictured an older greying man, with wire-rimmed glasses and a beard. Not a man so young and beautiful that he could have been sculpted personally by the hands of Michelangelo himself.
Heat crept across her cheeks, flushing them pink as she caught herself staring and, with great effort, finally tore her eyes away, focusing instead on Corey and his parents.
“Er…Tamara – the principal - should be here shortly,” she said to them all brightly, before turning to Corey. “Would you like to go and join Callie in the library? We’ll be about an hour,” she spoke clearly and signed to him.
She watched his eyes drift over to Callie, who had stopped at the nearby water bubblers for a drink, before he nodded his head, jogging over to her before she could walk ahead of him.
Smiling to herself, she watched the two walk off together, Callie talking and signing simply for Corey to understand. A small amount of hope blossomed inside Mia as she thought that Callie may possibly be the key to getting Corey more involved.
“Never underestimate the power of a pretty girl,” Cayd commented, making eye contact with Mia as if he had somehow heard the thoughts run through her head. Something passed between them, electrifying the air, causing Mia’s body to ignite under his gaze. An embarrassing gasp burst from her lips and her cheeks flamed yet again.
