Will Carina Rivera allow the shadows of her past to darken her future?

Only 10 months apart and almost identical in appearance, the Rivera sisters have often been mistaken for twins. From clothes and shoes to the bed they sleep in, the inseparable girls have always shared everything.

But the dreams and goals of Amelia and Carina Rivera are as far apart as the reputations they hold in the tight-knit Cuban community of Hialeah, Florida where the two girls have been raised by their single mother and grandmother.

Known as the good Rivera sister, 21-year-old, Amelia is ready to settle down as a young bride, to raise a family as a military wife, and to pass down her strong, Christian beliefs to the children she hopes to have.

But 20-year-old Carina has different ideas about life. She believes being the first in her family to earn a college degree will polish the tarnished reputation she holds in the community as the bad Rivera sister. She’s ready to face the challenges before her and certain a successful career will liberate her family from the hand to mouth existence they’ve always known.

When Carina is suddenly forced to become her family’s sole breadwinner, she’s faced with a challenge greater than college or career — Aaron Mendoza, her womanizing supervisor at the garment factory. Dark, forbidden, and wildly handsome… an image of Aaron has found its way into Carina’s soul through her daytime thoughts and nighttime fantasies of him. But there are other images looming in her soul as well — ghosts from unhealthy relationships in her past that aren’t quite ready to let her go.

Will Carina allow the shadows of her past to darken her future?

Can she escape from the trap set for her by the evil dwelling within Aaron Mendoza?
