When he finds Annie Wilson hiding out in his cottage, he's floored by her beauty and innocent nature--not to mention curious about why she was hiding. Jack soon finds himself persuading the lovely Annie to pretend to be his wife for as long as his grandmother is in town. With her mother's sudden return to Hunter's Mills, Annie finds herself without a place to live. While her mother entertains various men in her apartment, Annie finds Jack's request hard to turn down. A roof over her head, a handsome man at her side and the unconditional love of Jack's family. But Annie has a request of her own to make in return for her help. When Jack agrees, they begin the Marriage Sham. Falling in love wasn't supposed to be part of the game.
