Introduction

Skye Starling is overjoyed when her boyfriend, Burke Michaels, proposes after a whirlwind courtship. Except, Burke isn’t who he claims to be. Interspersed letters to his therapist reveal the truth: he’s happily married, and using Skye for his own, deceptive ends. On a collision course she doesn’t see coming, Skye throws herself into wedding planning, as Burke’s scheme grows ever more twisted. But of course, even the best laid plans can go astray. And just when you think you know where this story is going, you’ll discover that there’s more than one way to spin the truth.
