Julian Payne has spent countless night shifts trying to make it as a radio personality on an obscure AM station in Chicago. While most of the world is asleep, he captivates his growing audience with his smooth and masculine voice. His ratings rise as more and more emotionally scarred women tune in to get Julian's advice about their relationship issues.

Julian's own attempts at having a love life are complicated by his ten-year-old daughter, Samantha, who believes that no woman is good enough to take the place of her deceased mother. It's hard enough to find the right woman and keep her happy, but keeping Samantha happy is damn near impossible. But soon Julian's issues as a single parent become the least of his problems.

After years of struggling in Chicago, Julian gets his big break: a top radio station in Houston hires him to host their late-night talk show. While celebrating his last evening in Chicago with friends, he meets the sexy and intriguing Olivia Brown. Julian can't help being attracted to her dark, flowing hair, toned body, and hazel eyes that could put a man in a trance. Olivia makes her desire to spend the night with Julian clear right away. When Julian warns her that he's on a plane in the morning and has only one night to offer, Olivia assures him that a no promises-no commitment evening is just what she's looking for.

Once in Houston, Julian begins to build his reputation and his audience faster than he ever dreamed. He meets and pursues the beautiful Dr. Terri Ross, a woman with class and her own counseling practice. But Olivia has her own plans for Julian. The calls start coming. She shows up in town "on business." She waits for him outside the radio station. Suddenly Julian finds himself in a situation with a deranged woman who is determined to win him over -- or make his life a living hell.

Michael Baisden's hottest offering yet, God's Gift to Women is a suspenseful tale about the consequences of sex with a stranger and what one man will have to do to save himself and those he loves from the wrath of a woman scorned.
