Grace Vance is a young widow living in Dahlonega, Georgia. Her husband died a hero when he sacrificed his life while capturing a bomb-carrying maniac. His actions saved numerous lives and turned him into a bona fide hero and legend. Now Hollywood has come calling to the Georgia town of Dahlonega. Action hero movie star turned director, Stone Senterra, wants the world to know Harp Vance's story. The only problem is Grace won't cooperate.
Grace is very protective of her husband's legend and is unwilling to see it turned into a "more bang for your buck" cheap action thriller. So she and Stone are at a stalemate until Stone's bodyguard, Boone Nolene, arrives on the scene. Boone and Harp are cut from the same cloth and Grace's heart does a double take when they meet.
The rest of the story involves problems with the making of the movie and a sideplot concerning Boone's brother Armand. Through it all, the soul of the story is the love affair between Boone and Grace.
The plot in this book isn't one of Smith's greatest. It is more contrived than natural, and more flamboyant than feel-good. Hollywood names are tossed into conversations and bigger than life characters are allowed to act ridiculously.
