When lawyer Jude Conroy tells Cate that she's just inherited a fortune from a wealthy man, everyone - including Jude - presumes she must have been the man's mistress. Cate insists she doesn't even know the man who left her the money. But Jude has learned to be cynical about women who play the innocent - and part of him doesn't believe her. But another part wants to go to any lengths to prove she's telling the truth. Because if she's going to be anyone's mistress - or anyone's wife, for that matter - she's going to be his!
