But amid the chaos, a case of mistaken identity leads to an unexpected new love.

Then fire sweeps through the city, cornering the young lovers with no hope of rescue. Desperate to share their last moments together, Kathleen and Dylan impulsively marry. Incredibly, they survive. Now, as the fire burns down to cold ash, Kathleen must tell Chicago’s most eligible bachelor that he has married a fraud. But the joke’s on her. For this gentleman is no gentleman.

Dylan Kennedy — con artist, gambler, and ne’er-do-well — has been unwittingly caught in his own game. Now the real sparks are about to fly.---------- Thank you. Blessings. Lynn I
