Cursed with unfathomable rationality and impenetrable thought processes, Laura flitters through life without regard for convention, tradition or preservation. Her inability to perceive danger results in tricky situations that stretch the limits of human tolerance. When she falls in love with two older men, her perception of the world changes and she begins to accept what she is, an intelligent and dangerous combination of fire and ice. As Laura opens her mind and herself up to the unconventional, she begins to forget that actions have consequences, and that consequences can be damaging. Laura must reassess the lessons she's learned in order to recover from her destructive decisions.

"When Dr. Parti had his near-death experience on the operating table, he first watched his own operation from the ceiling--even recalling a joke told by his doctors during his surgery. He was greeted by archangels and his deceased father, who led him through the tortures of hell and revealed the toxic cycle of violence that has plagued his family for generations. He even reviewed the struggles of his previous lives which, in many ways, reflected those he still faced in the present. Finally, he experienced heaven. From the angels, he learned lessons of spiritual health that they insisted he bring down to earth-- to do so, Dr. Parti knew he had to change his ways"--Amazon.com.
