From the moment they meet, the air sizzles and Maggie immediately looses her heart. Can she go through with the plan? In the end, Caleb confronts her and she flees, shamed by her part in the plan.

However, life has a strange way of getting even and in the end; Maggie’s stepfather dies and leaves both women with nothing. Maggie’s mother is fragile and is left with nothing, not even the family home she loves in Ireland. But Maggie has a plan and she learns that Caleb is coming to Dublin to conduct business so she goes to see him, and begs for her family home and will do anything he wants so her mother can keep her home.

YES! Will Maggie leave with her heart in one piece? NO! Their journey was a painful one as Caleb didn’t want to believe that Maggie was a dishonest woman as at times signs pointed in the other direction. Maggie and Caleb’s love story was intense, full of passion and emotion and one I will long remember. Again, Abby Green has written a brilliant and entertaining love story.
