Disillusioned and suffering severe anxiety from the Christchurch earthquakes, Samantha Morgan is on the hunt for a rich husband and a quiet life to save her sanity. She moves to Port Victor, a town with the highest per capita millionaires, in the sweeping South Australian countryside. There she meets Max who doesn't fit her strict criteria, and is torn between her attraction for him and her goals for herself.
Max Haydon enjoys farming and keeping a low profile in his small town and has no intention of taking over the family's expansive business ventures. But when his parents hire the beautiful, complicated Samantha to uncover a fraudster, he has to think twice about getting involved. With Samantha kidnapped, time is running out.
Can they find love despite their different agendas, or will the risks be too costly for them both?
