Emmaline Rose Jones, daughter of a popular Arizona Senator, has twice as many secrets as truths. One truth, she hates her first name; for two secrets, fake it to make it more than a saying and she knows better than anyone that what you see is not always what you get.
Kirin Matthews is an open book, coming from a normal family without any real secrets. His one secret is his most treasured truth; he has been in love with the same girl since he was eight. When he makes plans to move forward, secrets he never would have imagined tie up his plans, thoughts and possibly his future.
When her past and his future collide to show the secrets of politics and the darker side family life. Even with a past revealed and a future altered, Kirin and Rose cling to one another to take down the worst evil she has ever had contact with, her own family.
With Kirin's hope of a future and Rose's fiercely protected secrets hanging in the balance they must decide if the past will rule their lives forever. If they do, their future may be a sacrifice they never intended to make.
