All comes crashing down when her father almost kills an influential millionaire. To keep him out of prison, she reluctantly agrees to marry and care for the victim.

Ripped out of his millionaire lifestyle, he finds himself engulfed in everyday village life. As love grows between Stephanie and Sean and he’s designing chicken coups instead of award-winning buildings, he gets to see a different side of life. And he likes what he sees. Though things become dangerous when the accident turns out to be sabotage, and his father demands a sacrifice for the family company.
