She Was Born With A Silver Spoon in Her Mouth.
Beautiful Schuyler Grant is a blue blood, from the top of her flaming auburn hair to the tip of her pedicured toes. Trace Ballinger is a high-powered attorney who rose from his blue-collar roots only to serve the rich residents of the historic Hudson River's gothic mansions-- the very ones whose wealth and snobbery he detests.
He Was Born With A Chip On His Shoulder.
Trace has been hired to execute "Crazy" Cora Grant's estate, including Grantwood, the mysterious crumbling castle she has left to her niece Schuyler. But Trace can barely hide his contempt for the Grants, a rich dynasty which exploited thousands of coal-mining families such as his own. Nor can he deny his growing desire for Schuyler, a pampered and privileged young woman he finds himself unwittingly, maddeningly attracted to.
Can They Ever See Eye To Eye?
Now, as Trace and Schuyler are drawn together, they begin to uncover the shocking secrets tucked away in the darkest corners of the creaking Grantwood, and to understand why the near-death "accidents" that keep occurring are no accident at all. And amidst all the danger, they must unravel the most burning mystery of all: can a blue-blooded beauty and a blue-collar boy find love and happiness, or is their relationship strictly... Lip Service.
