In 1993 Adria leaves her Montana home to travel to Portland, Oregon where she hopes to learn the truth about whether she is the long lost and thought dead daughter of deceased business mogul Witt Danvers. Witt's three children from his first wife are unhappy that someone once again claims to be London, who vanished twenty years ago. Seven years after London vanished, Witt's second wife, her mom Kat, died in what was thought was a drug induced suicide. However, Kat's killer realizes that Adria is London and plans to kill her too.

London's half-brother Zachary does not believe that Adria is London. However, when incidents to frighten Adria occur, he becomes protective. Worse he begins to fall in love with his half-sister and she reciprocates though both know this is taboo. As the “stalker” raises the ante to attempted murder, Zach tries to keep her safe though he struggles not to bed her.

Readers will need to adjust to the swinging back and forth between 1970, 1983, and 1993, which can get confusing.
