Sydney Wright is broke, starving and deeply in debt.  A stupid mistake four years ago cost her custody of her daughter Emma. Now, she’ll do anything to get her child back - even if it means a fake engagement to her sexy neighbor Grayson O’Reilly. Grayson isn’t attracted to blondes.  And he certainly isn’t attracted to the tiny, skinny blonde renting his grandmother’s guesthouse.  He offers to pose as Sydney’s fiancé because he knows it will make his grandmother happy. It has nothing to do with the surprisingly tempting taste of Sydney’s mouth or the way she so sweetly surrenders to his touch. As their temporary engagement starts to feel enticingly real, a new threat forces Sydney to choose between the life she’s always wanted with her child and a chance at love with Grayson.
