Everyone in Emily Eloise Snow's Atlanta, Georgia, hometown knows her as a sweet young woman who always does what's right. But when Emily's beloved mother dies, her quiet life is shaken to its core, leaving her devastated--and ready for a fresh start. Encouraged by her bolder, wilder best friend, Samantha, Emily moves to Washington, D.C. Samantha is sure D.C. will bring Emily her heart's desire. But that's exactly what Emily is afraid of. . .
Since she was eighteen, Emily has fought a fierce longing even Samantha doesn't know about--a love for a man that would break just about every rule she was taught to follow. Now, each step closer to D.C. is a step closer to him--and a sizzling, forbidden passion that could destroy not just her life as she knows it, but the image of the woman, and the friend, everyone believes her to be. . .
