How can Derek be with the woman he loves when he has to stay with the one he doesn’t?

Derek McCarthy won’t rest until he proves that his cunning uncle was responsible for his father’s death. But due to their frosty relationship, the only way he could get into his uncle’s properties to search for the evidence that could expose his uncle’s crimes is to keep pretending that he and the daughter of his uncle’s business partner are in love. But his feelings for his friend Bernadette Luna keep getting stronger, so when an arrangement with his girlfriend-in-name-only enables him to date Bernadette, he grabs it with both hands. Unfortunately, he is soon faced with a heart-breaking choice: risk his uncle discovering his ruse and destroying the evidence, or risk losing Bernadette forever.

Should Bernadette follow her heart or listen to her head?

Bernadette Luna has been secretly in love with Derek McCarthy for ages. When Derek finally shows his attraction to her, she is ecstatic. He is truly the man of her dreams. So when she discovers that Derek might be keeping secrets from her, she has to make a decision: follow her heart or listen to her head. Problem is, her heart has misled her many times before, especially when it comes to Derek.

It’s no different with Jaxon Caine, who continues to reject her. To her surprise, though, Jaxon seems jealous of her new bodyguard. Could it be he’s interested after all?
