Bronwynn Prescott Pierson was a jet-setting socialite, a one-time fashion icon, and now a runaway bride. Wade Grayson was a straitlaced, ambitious congressman from the American heartland.

But what their enemies didn't count on was that the power that drew them together would always be a little stronger than anything--or anyone--that would try to drive them apart.
