The shock of suddenly losing her fiance, Alan, in a car accident, is almost too much bear.Until Connie comes up with a plan to stay close to Alan forever. And she's finally found just the man to help her. There's only one thing standing in her way: his wife. She's smart, beautiful, and has exactly what Connie desperately needs. Connie will just have to be smarter, more seductive-and stay one step ahead of a detective who's as determined to save her as Connie is to destroy her. . .
