A Powerful Connection It was not the life she had planned. Nadine Mitchell was looking forward to getting her first real job, then starting a business. But when she finds herself pregnant before she even finishes high school, the young man's mother forces them into wedlock. Carrie Boyd also saw her plans for a better life derailed after a fling leaves her pregnant with twins. At the center of their angst is Cyrus, a man not yet ready to be a father....with his wife...or his girlfriend. Still, Cyrus manages to keep the two lives separate, while coveting the life he really wants.
