After a racing bet goes wrong, Kentucky’s most eligible bachelor, Oscar Novak-Chambers, is up to his neck in trouble with ruthless loan shark Louie Gomez. To clear the debt, Oscar must use the family’s good standing with the governor’s office to obtain a monumental favor.

When he inadvertently misleads the governor, he gains yet another powerful enemy. Time for plan B.

Oscar targets the governor’s daughter, Stacey Davenport, for the leverage she can offer with her father. However, as a consultant to the DA’s office, Stacey is out to bring down Kentucky’s criminal hierarchy—and Louie Gomez is on her list—the man Oscar needs to appease.

But Stacey has her own secrets. Can she keep her skeletons in the closet?
As the web of lies unravels, hidden secrets turn deceit into a motive for murder.
