Sportswriter Judd Mackie has earned fame with his scathing columns. Women's tennis pro Stevie Corbett is a favorite target of his sarcastic prose. In his view, she's too focused on being a cute, crowd-pleaser to be taken seriously as an athlete on the court. What Stevie's nemesis doesn't know is that she's suffering a medical condition that's all too serious and potentially ruinous to her career. When Judd uncovers the sensational story, he recognizes it as one that comes along only once in a lifetime...but telling it would cost him the woman he now doesn't want to live without.
