Whisked away to his grand house, it seems Ruby can forget the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in secret and remain husband and wife in name alone.
But the grand walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the cold eyes of Paul’s mother. And when Ruby’s venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Pearl’s secret father, the twisted lengths to which Ruby will go for love surprise even her. To save her family and her heart, she ally with her greatest enemy to do the unthinkable.
