Natalie and Joseph Reyes have everything any young couple could desire-a loving marriage, children together, wealth, and enterprise. But the demands of a controlling mother-in-law and her husband's unaccounted hours spent in places unknown to Natalie threaten to drive a wedge between them. With dwindling trust in her beloved, accompanied by mysterious symptoms within her body, Natalie agonizes like a single mother within her marriage.
Relatives who witness Natalie's faith can only wish for her problems. A dishonorable past and faithless tendencies threaten to shatter the love between Shasta and Javier Reyes. Unaware to all their family, a violent face-off occurs when Natalie's psychotic cousin torments and imprisons two serial killers attempting to kidnap her. Cousin Tiphany Taylor hopes to marry the wealthy father of her children until reality forces her to make a heart-wrenching decision about their lives together. Alicia Reyes goes on a manhunt for her meddling widowed mother and finds a homeless man to groom for the mission.
The shattering worlds of the prominent Reyes and Taylor families blend as a distractive force against the couple, who married from each family. Surrounded by everyone else's drama, Natalie and Joseph rarely find time to strengthen what she sees as a starving marriage.
