Until Harriet Jones comes to town and messes up his well ordered life. She's mysterious, beautiful, and he knows she's lying to him. But that doesn't stop him from wanting to paint her.
Hattie is looking for a sanctuary of her own. Faking her death was the only way to save her life. But keeping her true identity a secret from the only man who's managed to capture her heart is a bitter pill to swallow when her past catches up with her.
