Chloe Masters wants to enjoy her last night of freedom before her arranged marriage is finalized. It was during her whim that brought about her current situation. Sure, the man she is married to is heart stopping gorgeous and has a body to die for, but that doesnít change the fact that he is the wrong groom. Now, Chloe is left to find her hunk of a husband and ask him for a divorce.

Paying for a womanís company for the night is not Everest Beaumontís style, but it is the style of a company in Vegas who is trying to woo him into selling his business. He is disconcerted to see the high dollar prostitute arrive at his remote Montana home. Things only become more complicated when his meddling, but endearing, grandparents decide to play matchmaker for the couple.

Stranded and alone with Everest in his mountain cabin, Chloe has no choice but to make the best of it. The more she got to know Everest the more she realized that he is not the man for her. Granted, he is incredibly handsome and easy to be around, but he is much too proud for the arrangement she had to offer. Which is why she had to divorce him. Another man waited to fill his place. He knew all about her fatherís will and its stipulations. He knew his role and the outcome. Everything is arranged, all neat and tidy. That is, until she married the wrong man. The feelings she is developing for Everest felt so right. Leaving him felt so wrong. How is Chloe going to get through a sham of a marriage after being with, albeit briefly, a man like Everest Beaumont?
