After Quenby Rhodes leaves her cheating bridegroom at the altar, she meets Caleb Fletcher-Smith, a med student and the cousin of one of her bridesmaids for the wedding that didn't happen. She tries to convince herself that the instant pull she feels to Caleb is just a rebound thing. She keeps going with this even after the incredible kiss she shares with Caleb at her wedding-reception-turned-freedom party.
Caleb came to Virginia to get out of Georgia for the weekend and to make sure his cousin didn't get herself into too much trouble. Falling for a runaway bride wasn't in his plans. Especially since he's sworn off women. However, after he shares a kiss with Quenby, he can't just go back to Georgia and forget about her. This woman might be what he's been looking for and failed to find through his two botched engagements.
Caleb and Quenby share some hot times. Quenby tells herself it's just a post wedding debacle fling. Caleb, however, wants more. And Caleb is a man who's used to getting what he wants.
