Initially swept up by Carl’s panache, mistaking his possessiveness as caring, she soon finds him to be selfish, controlling, and a philanderer. Seth Trudow is an art student taking Rachelle’s course. He is attracted to Rachelle and she is to him. At the same time, Seth is entangled with the eccentric Laura Toth, who is as possessive of Seth as Carl is of Rachelle. Things spin out of control as Carl becomes embroiled in an underworld gambling scandal. In the meantime, Rachelle’s class assignment leads to a private meeting with Seth, and they become entangled in a love affair that ends in bloody tragedy and pregnant vows. When the worst finally happens, Rachelle is set on pulling together her shattered life.
