Rhiannon Bravo-Calabretti was heartbroken when her first
love walked away. She was of royal birth and he was a
commoner out of an orphanage. While they were attending
college, they succumbed to the passion they felt. Marcus
was convinced that he would never be worthy of her and he
ended their affair.
Rhia has tried to move past the pain. She got engaged a
couple of times but could never get to the wedding. Now,
she is watching her sister marry the man of her dreams and
Marcus Desmarais has been assigned as her bodyguard. It
shouldn't have been hard to ignore him but Rhia was aware of
him every minute. Rhia's sister, Alice helps her plan some
time away. Alice obtains a truck for Rhia and with Alice's
help, Rhia slips away.
It doesn't take long for Marcus to discover Rhia's absence
and he starts following. He watches as Rhia goes to a bar
and flirts with every man there. When bad weather strikes,
Marcus convince Rhia to return to the ranch with him. A
local driving a pickup loses control and goes into a slide.
His truck forces Marcus off the road.
Marcus and Rhia are forced off the road. The storm wipes

Marcus is the best man Rhia's ever known, and she's never

to her side. It's like a dream come true
or a nightmare.
Because Marcus is as stubborn as ever: she's a Bravo-
Calabretti, he's a lowly security guard, and they can never
be equals. Ever.
Then a breathless night that should have brought closure
brings something else: a baby. Marcus insists that no child
of his will grow up without its own mother and father.
Well, Rhia has her own requirement: her child will be
raised on love, not the dry bread of obligation. And Marcus
has made it abundantly clear that his duty to Montedoro
comes before everythingâ€”especially his own desires.
