Alone, Rae must face the town of Leeward who blame her for sending her stepbrother to prison, costing their high school football team one of their champions. Now, her fate lays in the hands of the man who orchestrated her rape and shame, former football captain and elected mayor, Todd Bryant.
When she rescues Logan Birdsong from a canal, she starts to believe she can have the fairy tale but when she learns he is working for Todd, she tries to get as far from him as possible. She joins her friend’s dating club and that soon turns to disaster when her dates start turning up dead.
Logan is just trying to keep his stepfather’s company from filing chapter 13. He has over-extended and needs the new spa and hotel Bryant plans to build to put the company back in the black.
Prostitutes at business meetings and Todd’s attitude make Logan wary. He is torn between his affection for Rae and his need to protect his stepdad’s company. When he becomes a murder suspect, that choice becomes easier.
Together Rae and Logan must prove their innocence, but they must stay alive to do it. Thrust together, they soon give in to their desires but someone doesn’t want them to have their happy ending.
