When Danielle discovers her boyfriend also has a boyfriend, she flees Altoona for Lexington, Kentucky and the rent-free cottage of her new employer, handsome lawyer-rancher Sam Thompson. The cottage proves to be less than idylic, however, drawing intruders, blackmail and violence–climaxing in an attempt on Danielle’s life. Amidst the terrors, Danielle must deal with her growing feelings for Sam against the sabotages of his former fiance, Nora Reynolds, and even Nora’s father. And just when Danielle realizes Sam is the “lid” her grandmother had promised she’d find, a secret from her past is discovered and forces Danielle to leave Sam and return to Pennsylvania.
