Gillian Mahler has a plan, take her job as soap opera star Lara Corday's personal assisstant. Maybe she can endear herself to Lara first, then spring the news that Lara is her birth mother, who abandoned her as an infant twenty-eight years before.
Trace Sutton has a plan too, work undercover as a bodyguard, posing as Lara Corday's gigolo. Maybe then he can discover the identity of the faceless stalker who wants Lara Dead.
In Lara's sumptuous mansion high on a cliff above Newport, Rhode Island, Gillian and Trace meet and attraction sparks right away.
This certainly complicates their plans.
Gillian can't possibly allow herself to fall for a man who's her long-lost mother's lover, and no way can Trace blow his cover as a bodyguard, especially when some sleuthing reveals that Gillian has an excellent motive for murdering the woman he's guarding!
