Single mom Kerri Sullivan will do anything to get the funding for the research that could save her nine-year-old son, Cody from deadly Gilliar's Disease, even if it means accosting billionaire Nathan King, while he is having lunch. Nathan had lost his own son Daniel to the disease six years ago. Dr. Abram Wallace had been making great strides in the research for the disease, when there had been an explosion in the lab killing three scientists, four members of the cleaning crew and two security guards. The lab was shut down and a lot of employees were laid off. The small town of Songwood, Washington was slowly dying too. Now only Dr. Wallace and his assistant were working on the cure. Kerri begs Nathan to give the fifteen million dollars that Dr. Wallace said that he would needs to reopen the lab. Nathan refuses to give the money for the research.

Nathan was in need of a more favorable image in the news to get the permits for the zoning and funding that he needs for his newest construction site. Nathan will give the money to Dr. Wallace in exchange for Kerri and Cody going out with Nathan so he will be see in a more favorable light by the press. Nathan has a reporter that had been reporting anything that would trash Nathan's character. Will the reporter find out about the deal that Nathan and Kerri had made?
When wealthy developer Nathan King refuses to fund research that could prolong her young son's life, vivacious single mother Kerri Sullivan, who will not take no for an answer, will stop at nothing to change his mind.
