But when she sees all the technological changes coming, will it be the same place for her? She feels threatened by Jack's plans to install a computerized check out system, but is intrigued by his air of command and self-assured confidence.

Larry Billings dated Nadja for a while in the past, and his interest in her has never waned. He wants to rekindle the flame, but now Jack, a suspicious city boy, is in his way. What lengths will Larry go to, to claim what he thinks is his?
As for Jack and Nadja; will his dark secrets from the past drive her away? And how will she react when he offers to introduce her to the BDSM toy box under his bed?
