Now, embroiled in a nightmare of distrust and betrayal, the innocent young lady must try to melt the ice of hatred around the playboy's heart.
Preacher's daughter Lauren Holbrook thinks that she is going to work for wealthy Olivia Lockett as a secretary. Instead, the matriarch makes Lauren a scandalous offer to marry her son in name only. Jared, the heir to the Lockett dynasty, is a known playboy rebel. Lauren, achingly aware of her feelings for Jared, marries him. But will Lauren's love for Jared be strong enough to make the risky marriage work?
