One man wants to love her. One man wants to silence her. How long can she hide the shattering secret that puts her life in danger?
In the peaceful New England countryside, a shot rings out... and a pretty farm girl disappears with a scandalous secret that could destroy a political empire. A year later, she resurfaces as Lark Chandler, with a stunning new face and a glamorous identity. With one goal in mind - revenge - she moves from the decadent playgrounds of the European jet set to the thrilling, high-pressure world of Hollywood, where she dazzles the film industry and ignites the passions of handsome movie executive Dom Whitfield.
But as Dom romances Lark, the talented beauty who seems to have come out of nowhere, he is tormented by the feeling that he's known her from before. Her careful reserve about her past haunts him. He will do anything for her - but what he does not know about his exciting new love is that she's running away from one fateful night - and that someone is watching her ... desperate enough to strike her dead.
Lark's enemy will do anything to hold onto his dream of a power palace in Washington - even murder. As her success pushes her more and more into the spotlight, he moves in closer to his prey. Urgently, she tries to close the net around him, while at the same time outwitting his terrifying maneuvers.
Revenge is almost in sight - until he discovers the truth about who Lark really is. Their cat and mouse game spirals into unforeseen danger, and her plan for revenge turns into a fight to stay alive.
