Jordan is searching for Devon, wanting to apologize for the
way her treated her all those years ago. The young woman
who seduced him never told him she was Devon. If she had,
he never would have slept with her. He's retired from his
job with the government, is planning to marry and wants to
put the past to rest. Eden's boss has contacted him stating
he has a lead on Devon. He values Jordan's expertise and
offers him a job while Eden is working on the Devon lead.

circumstances force her to face the past. She creates a
story of Devon's demise so that Jordan will return to the
