His imaginative nine-year-old son claims he's a spy, but for Hannah Frost, headmistress of the elite Emerson Academy, Michael Sawyer is just another wealthy single parent with a precious - and precocious - little darling. Oh, the man is certainly handsome and sexy enough to leave her both shaken and stirred - hey, nobody does it better - but a secret agent? Come on! Yet truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. Turns out Michael is working undercover to unravel a web of intrigue and deception involving, of all things, her school! He reluctantly enlists her help, and as their liaison draws them closer together, Hannah is thrust into a world far more exciting - and dangerous - than any she's ever known. One where people aren't what they seem and where words, even ones of love, may not be true.
