It all started as a joke. Sabina was only pretending to be engaged to her best friend, millionaire Al Thorndon. Al had talked her into this scheme as a way to trick his older brother, Thorn. Al had not choice but to lie. And to make Sabina his accomplice.
Sabina thought that it would be for just one night. When Thorn accused her of being a gold digger, Sabina just laughed it off. She didn't think of the repercussions-that Thorn would dig up her long-buried secrets. Revealing them now would destroy everything she'd worked so hard to put behind her. But she couldn't let her best friend down, could she?
