Lucy Blake is a spirited, compassionate schoolteacher who's decided 'Mr Happily Ever After' definitely doesn't exist for her. Fate intervenes when she's almost knocked unconscious. Her hazy vision clears, and she finds herself face to face with a devilishly handsome ... priest!
The mysterious disappearance of a seemingly worthless painting from the school's museum, together with the swoon worthy priest's questionable identity, has Lucy playing super sleuth. Suddenly, her humdrum life is looking immeasurably better.
Father Xavier, better known as Xavier Lamont, private investigator, has gone undercover as a teaching priest to investigate the theft of a painting. The last thing he needs, or expects, is to encounter a feisty, curvaceous teacher who has him hot under his fake dog collar and doing her best to prove he's a phony, and blow his cover along the way.
To find everlasting love and happiness, Lucy must overcome her lingering doubts--listening to her mischievous friend wouldn't hurt, either--before Xavier tires of his priestly charade and Lucy's misgivings, and hightails it back to the city. Hmm, easier said than done!
