Once the mission is over, the marriage will be annulled-that's the agreement until Eve discovers she's in love with her handsome new husband and decides to fight for his love.

Matt Sterling is bedazzled by the exotic woman he's married.Though he's agreed not to consummate the marriage, he can't help the fantasies that invade his mind every time he looks at her. It's the honorable thing to do, especially since Eve knows nothing of his true mission. He's in a dangerous game and the wrong move could cost them both their lives.
