Carter Davis captured Bailey Ventura’s heart in Kisses Don’t Lie, and now she’s ready to say, “I do.” But now it’s three days before the wedding, and Carter seems to have come down with a convenient case of amnesia. Or has he? Bailey suspects Carter might be faking it to get out of marrying her. If so, it’s genius—no one would expect a man to marry a woman he doesn’t know. Has Bailey’s fairytale romance really come to an end, or is Carter simply doing what he must to protect her?

But after four dates and he hasn’t even kissed her, she begins to wonder if he’s got something to hide. Does Jake have a secret that will cause Pepper to swear off all men forever? And what, exactly, is that secret?
