Lucy will not stand back and allow them to accuse her stepfather of something that he did not do, she will try to get close to Hayden in order to help absolve Graham. If helping Hayden is the only way to prove Graham’s innocence then she will, but that does not mean that she will act on the attraction she feels for him.

Hayden will use any and all the help that Lucy can give him, but deep down he knows that Graham is guilty, and he will not stop until he finds all the evidence necessary. He knows that Lucy believes in Graham’s innocence and he will try to spare her unnecessary pain. But he cannot get to close to her for he will not risk his heart or his baby son’s heart getting hurt in the process.

Secrets abound and the person behind the illegal activities may just be out to hurt not only Graham but Lucy too. It will be up to Hayden to discover the truth and keep Lucy safe at the same time.

If you like a romance that has instant sparks, an intriguing plot and a couple that will have to fight for what they truly want, then you will like No Stranger to Scandal by Rachel Bailey.
