After agreeing to marry to Lt. Wyatt Bloodsworth in just one month, Blair Mallory finds herself scrambling to pull together an acceptable wedding. One night, while on the dress hunt, she gets seriously banged up when she's nearly run down by a hit-and-run driver.

Previously, Blair was nearly murdered, so Wyatt is determined to find the culprit. Although he assumes it was an isolated case of road rage, Blair isn't so sure -- she suspects she's being stalked.

Still, the wedding plans must proceed, and Blair will risk life and limb for the cause. And besides, how likely is it that someone else wants to kill her?
