Daws, aka Sergeant Fred Dawson, U.S. Army, is a determined and highly
respected leader. Called to serve in Desert Storm, he performs two impromptu
rescue missions and manages to bring all of his men back home. While
still haunted by the cost of his actions, he loses the most important
person in his life, in an accident for which he feels partly responsible.
Deanna Meyers has had it with men. As far as she's concerned, there
isn't a true loyal and honest gentleman left in New York City. In the
midst of trying to advance in the world of advertising where the men
in charge are more interested in her other attributes than in her skills,
she finds herself in another destructive relationship, theis time to
the possible detriment of her career.
When they run into each other at a bus stop in the pouring rain after
midnight, Daws and Deanna recognize the spark of a connection that draws
them in the way they are both drawn to the city lights at night.
