Skye “Bleu” Aberra, the main character is from a rural town in Alabama and going through
a divorce from a cheating husband. Skye decides to leave her position as Corporal with
the ABI, and accepts a job as a police officer in Miami, FL, opting for a new beginning
far away from the life she once knew. It was difficult because this is where her dad was
gunned down by gang members when she was 15 years old. She wanted to honor him and
his legacy. But God was telling her there is more for her. She had always prayed for God
to send her a man He created just for her. A God fearing man, full of love for his family,
faith, loyalty and one who was real. Being 48 years old, she was now doubtful one existed,
but her faith in God led her to follow His nudging her out of her comfort zone and telling
her it’s time to move.
She ran face to face into 50 year old Haitian Rico Viciere in the grocery store, and her
world changed. All her defenses seemed to vanish and she knew this was the one. He
was in love with her at first sight. He was drawn to her blue eyes. He loved “Bleu”. That
was his nickname based on his love of her eyes, not knowing her dad gave her that for her
middle name. From their first encounter, it was as if they knew one another and felt they
were led to meet.
She sensed his withdrawal when she spoke of her past on the Gang Task Force and
possibility of promotion to the unit with Miami PD. Finally he comes clean of his time
in prison for drug smuggling, carjacking and armed robbery. She feels he’s holding back.
He’s frightened to tell her his truth because she had opened up about her dad. He knew
how she felt about gangs. Could she get past this? Would his past ruin their future?
Would her southern Alabama family be accepting of someone of a different race and
culture with a questionable past?
