Maggie Madison has devoted her life to helping others. Practically abandoned as a child, Maggie understands what it is like to feel unwanted. Running a shelter for the street kids of Atlanta is hard work, and the necessities"money for food, repairs"are hard to come by. Maggie figures that the shelter is providing a great service to the whole community by keeping kids off the street and protecting the value of nearby businesses, and she uses this logic to solicit donations from her neighbors. Some respond with repeated generosity, but Adam `The Ogre' Fuentes has always given her a hard time. Their repeated disagreements have become personal as they find themselves less repelled by each other and more and more attracted to each other. Adam is of the opinion that it is wrong to help those who should be helping themselves, but instinctively turns to Maggie when his niece runs away and he desperately needs help finding her. While Maggie works hard to both locate Adam's niece and council the non-traditional family, she begins to face some of her own demons, including her long lost father and her inability to consider anything in her life permanent. Will Adam be able to convince her that while a temporary investment in the shelter's street kids is worthwhile, a more lasting commitment to him could open up a whole new world for her?
