What if you learned that your fianc was not who he claimed to be?
Engaged to charming, seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered; even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later a strange man turns up at her apartment . . .
Mike Newland is an undercover detective. His assignment is to use Sara to track down a woman who is one of the most notorious criminals in the country, and who also happens to be the mother of the man Sara plans to marry.
Mike thinks the job will be easy - if he can figure out how to make Sara trust him. But Mike has no idea what this mission has in store for him. He has connections to Edilean dating back to his grandmother's time there in 1941, but he's worked hard to keep them private. As Mike and Sara get to know each other, he can't help but share secrets that he's told no one else. And in return, Sara opens up to Mike about things she could never reveal to Greg. As they work together to solve two mysteries, will Mike and Sara's growing love for each other be enough to heal the wounds of the past?
