Jasmine creció como una niña rica, ajena a la destrucción que su padre iba causando por todas partes. Derek pertenecía a la zona más pobre de la ciudad. Diez años después, sus vidas se han invertido. Ahora él es un magnate multimillonario mientras que ella es quien trabaja duramente aunque apenas se las arregla para salir adelante por culpa de las prácticas comerciales poco éticas de su padre.
Derek viene en busca de venganza y en su lugar se entera de que tiene un hijo a medio crecer y que la mujer con la que ha estado enfadado durante tantos años no es quien pensaba que era. Ambos luchan contra la pasión que todavía sienten por el otro, hasta que finalmente se vuelve irresistible.
Acompaña a Derek y a Jasmine en su aventura mientras que re-descubren una pasión que nunca murió y la realidad de las mentiras que los mantenían separados.

A star fell from the heavens and Jasmine watched in awe as the light slowly dimmed, and then disappeared entirely.
The feel of Derek’s hand stroking her back was pure bliss, and she felt as if she could lie here all night long, never return to the real world. This place they’d created together was perfect — no father telling her it was wrong, no worries, no troubles.
“I love you so much, Jasmine,” Derek whispered in her ear. “You are my world, my life.”
“You know how much I love you,” she replied, lifting her head to accept the gentle kiss from his lips. Her body melted all over again at his slightest touch.
“I hate having to take you back home tonight,” he said, pulling her even closer.
“Then don’t,” she begged.
“Your father would hunt us down,” he told her.
“I don’t care. I know what I want and that’s to be with you, Derek.”
“Then we should run away together. I’ve actually been thinking about it a lot, about moving on from here.” As she flinched, he added, “Only with you, my love; I’d never leave you behind. Here’s my idea. My dad will be fine. He’s starting his new business. It’s foolproof. He wants me to run it with him, but I have bigger dreams than running a computer store. I want to go to the city, intern for someone like Bill Gates, learn from them, and make something of myself,” he said, passion flowing through his young voice.
“You already are someone special, Derek. You won my heart, and I’ve given it to you for life,” she said, kissing his neck as the full moon washed its light over their naked bodies.
“You make me feel special — make me feel as if there’s nothing I can’t do.”
“That’s because you’re Superman,” she told him with a giggle. “Definitely more powerful than a locomotive…”
He laughed, then grew serious again. “What do you say? I’ll take care of you if you come with me. We can get married and start our lives in the city,” he promised. “You can even go to cooking school and open that café you’ve always talked about.” He grew more excited as he spoke.
Jasmine paused as she thought about what he was asking of her. Could she leave it all behind? If Derek left, though, what would she have to stay for? Nothing worth keeping. She loved her father, but he was so cold most of the time — how much would he miss her, really? He’d eventually get over his anger and their relationship would heal, though it might take a few years.
Derek would have to come back. His father and cousins were here, and they were all closer than most families. The three boys were more siblings than cousins. She’d just be starting a new adventure with the boy she loved, but she wouldn’t be cutting her ties here completely.
“Yes. I’ll come with you. You have to give me a few days, though,” she asked.
Derek pulled her on top of him with a laugh. Jasmine was a little sore, but the pleasure far outweighed the discomfort. The two of them made love beneath the stars, their joy shining even brighter.
They were going to forge a new path for just the two of them. Nothing could keep them from their destiny.
