It's the sweetness of the kiss that decides the life mate. Young girls are placed and face different life styles from which they must make choices. Every year a big celebration occurs! The celebration is for all of the unattached men to find their brides.
Kera ZoŽ is the only girl in town who wants absolutely nothing to do with it. This archaic ritual of finding a husband is outdated. She is very vocal about it making it clear to all who know her what she thinks about it. She wants to leave the town and make her own way in the world. When the time is right, she will find her own husband! But...her father has other plans!

For the first time, he sees the one he wants, the one he must kiss, the one he must have any way he can get her! This is the one he desires, but can he make her his in everyway or will she be the one to bring him around?
