The petite blonde married a Hollywood star, yet she’s the one who spends every day playing a part: The part of a happy wife. A year ago, she agreed to wed a famous actor to diffuse rumors about his personal life. Now, her divorce sits just around the corner, along with a five million dollar payout. However, as she prepares to exit her fake marriage gracefully, her drop-dead-gorgeous brother-in-law walks through the door… and into her heart.
Dark-haired, blue-eyed hunk, Zach, crashes Michael and Karen’s fancy one-year anniversary party, determined to meet the wife his brother hid from their family. But sparks fly the moment he and Karen see each other. When the famous couple decides to visit the whole Gardner clan, Karen must keep Michael’s secret under wraps in front of his questioning relative… including Zach, the man who could be the real love of her life.

“Did you ever bring girls up here and give Beacon something interesting to watch?”
“Oh, no . . . Hilton’s inspiration point is up by my family’s cabin.
She stood and grabbed a handful of rocks. Leaning over, she attempted to skip a rock over the flat surface of the water only to see it fall into the pond without a bounce.
“Isn’t the cabin several miles away?” The next rock she skipped bounced once.
“Far enough away to not get caught.”
“Is there such a place in this town?” The next three rocks dropped into the water.
Zach stood up behind her. He took her hand in his and slowly guided her in the right motion to skip the rock. “It’s in the wrist.”
He demonstrated and skipped it four times before it gave up and fell in.
Karen tried again, failed. Zach placed one hand on her shoulder, the other on her arm. Her next attempt skipped the rock three times.
He kept a hand on her shoulder, unable to move away as she skipped a few more.
She straightened her spine and he expected her to move away. Instead, she leaned back into his arms and sighed. He held her and they both stared out over the water in silence.
Zach looked down when her hand reached up to caress his arm. The simple touch spoke volumes.
He placed his lips next to her head and indulged in the peachy smell of her hair. He closed his eyes and savored the moment.
