Wealthy heiress Cally Wilde truly has it all: beauty, brains, and a hunky fiancé, Evan Paley of the Los Angeles police department. After being entangled with men only
interested in her money, and almost having been killed for her inheritance, she is finally
ready for her happily ever after. What could possibly go wrong?
But things take a turn for the worse much too quickly in this wannabe fairy tale. When Evan receives an odd phone call from a lady in distress he refuses to identify, Cally is on edge about what he could be keeping from her. Her insecurities come to full attention, but she never imagines that seconds later, she will find Evan has disappeared after gunshots are exchanged, leaving a stranger’s dead body behind.
Cally frantically investigates a cryptic trail of clues left by kidnappers who
seem to delight in terrorizing her with the threats of harm to Evan if she doesn’t follow their instructions. Evan is able to talk to Cally, briefly, on several occasions, and she races to save his life even as she doubts his motives, leading her through
more secrets than she cares to uncover. A twisted triangle of murder, corporate corruption,
and emerges, and Cally is in the middle of it all. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?
