When ex-attorney and white-collar criminal, David Quentin Gray Jr. escapes from prison, wheels are set into motion that had paused 18 years before. That was when a botched raid on a madman's compound had sent a young girl to the hospital and a supposed death. That girl was Elizabeth Marcum now (Beth Slocum), the madman- Mordecai Young and the unfortunate FBI agent, Josh Kendall.
Now 18 years later, Elizabeth Marcum has reinvented herself as Beth Slocum, a young attractive high school teacher who is taking some time off and tutoring to supplement her income. She keeps mainly to herself and runs everyday. Nothing earth shattering or eye catching, until her picture is caught in the small town's newspaper, thus Mordecai Young's eye as well.
Private Investigator/FBI Agent, Josh Kendall arrives on the scene, under cover as Maude's (Beth's best and only friend) grandson, to protect Beth. Unfortunately, Young's voices get him to kill Maude, thus sending into motion a series of disastrous events all aimed at forcing Beth back into the arms of Young.
The romantic tension between Beth and Josh adds sizzle ! I don't know about you, but sex on a couch in front of a fireplace has always been one of my secret fantasies!
