What she never expects was Ethan Winthrop to be the answer to her dilemma.
When they realize attraction simmers just below the surface, will they let it turn into something more? And what happens when the press and his ex find out where Ethan's hiding? Can they find a way to make their fake marriage real despite all the obstacles?
