Познакомьтесь с Хоуп Спенсер, репортёром из большого города, которой надоело совать нос в жизнь реальных людей и которая решила, что ей намного лучше удастся написать что-либо выдуманное от начала до конца. Теперь реальность для Хоуп - всего лишь отправная точка, и журналистке не терпится увидеть новые места, новых людей и получить новые впечатления, которые она сможет превратить в хорошо оплачиваемую выдуманную историю. Необычайно привлекательный шериф городка Госпел, штат Айдахо, напомнил Хоуп, что у реальности есть свои преимущества, хотя великолепные физические данные Дилана Тэйбера и его обаяние деревенского парня слишком хороши, чтобы быть правдой. Ложь может оказаться полезной, но даже Хоуп знает, что та не является хорошей основой для взаимоотношений. И всё же есть единственная вещь, в которой Хоуп абсолютно уверена: Дилан не больше её хочет раскрывать свои секреты, сделав чистосердечное признание. Пока не хочет. Тем временем Хоуп придётся смириться с тем фактом, что привлекательный шериф говорит, будто растит сына в одиночку, потому что мама мальчика - ангел. И что с готовностью верит в рассказ журналистки о том, что её преследует рассерженный гном. Учитывая то, что происходит между ней и Диланом, возможно, он всё же сможет найти способ объединить свою реальность и фантазии Хоуп в единое целое.

The task falls to Jenna, but convincing a legendary warrior who has buried his sword to save her people will cost her everything.
Kane has a past filled with betrayal and a prophecy that warns him taking up the sword again will mean his death. Despite the danger, he's unable to completely refuse Jenna's plea for help. He agrees to train her in the arts of war in return for her innocence. All too late he realizes he's made a fool's bargain; he wants much more than her body. She owns his soul, and that may cost him his life.
