To support her struggling family, Lacie Collins slaves as the under-appreciated personal assistant to the spoiled Mavis Reddington. Lacie doesn’t mind the hard work as long as it allows her to stand on her own two feet. Then Mavis’s brother, the charming, compassionate Dr. Alden Llewellyn, arrives for a visit. He’s the sort of man she could come to depend on — and nothing scares Lacie more.
Alden admires Lacie’s integrity and dedication to her family. He wants to help her make a better life for them — a life he can share. Her refusal to trust him is like a slap in the face. Alden doesn’t know how to break down the walls around Lacie’s heart, but he’s not about to back down from the challenge.
