He’s everything she wants…but he’s not the man she believes him to be.
Detective Derek Brewer believes in the clear dividing line between right and wrong. Years ago, his twin brother Alden fell on the wrong side of that line and Derek has never forgiven Alden for it. But lately Alden has been working hard to change his ways, so when he asks—no, begs—Derek to pose as him for a few days in order to help him out, Derek reluctantly agrees despite the misgivings of his conscience.
Toni Park is desperate to save her older brother from the grip of a terrible drug addiction. She’s put her life on hold to move back home and help him, but every day he seems to be slipping further from her grasp. When she meets Alden Brewer, she sees in the darkly sexy man the potential for a little selfish fun, even if only for a short time. Little does she realize that he’s not who he says he is.

He consoles himself with the knowledge that their intense affair is only temporary and no one will actually get hurt when it ends. But when their relationship grows deeper, the truth could end up costing them both more than they imagined…
