Mona Smith receives a warning from her brother – a local drug kingpin intends to collect money she doesn’t have. She hurriedly stuffs what she can into a backpack and flees Minneapolis.
Linc Dray has been rejected by the final candidate on his list. Unless he marries within thirteen days, he won’t be able to inherit his grandfather’s farm – and continue the dream of growing the current tiny apple orchard to commercial size.
Mona sprints into Linc’s life, begging for a ride out of the city. He wants to do the right thing. Is she a clever con artist or the answer to his dilemma? After a bumpy beginning, he proposes a marriage of convenience. But before they can exchange vows, Linc is framed for murder. And what can they do about these inconvenient emotions?
