Seven years ago, Joshua Falcon burst through the doors of a local diner and asked the woman working there if she would marry him. It wasn't meant to be a marriage of love, but one of financial responsibility-he had to be married to take over his family's company. The woman was Vera, and she was a ravishing blonde...or at least that was what Joshua thought. In actuality, she was Jessie, a chocolate-haired coworker of Vera's who'd borrowed her uniform! Jessie has lived for seven years as Joshua's hidden wife and was paid a monthly stipend, but Joshua never bothered with her, keeping mistresses instead. One day, he meets this intriguing woman and chooses to make her his mistress. The trouble is, it's Jessie and she's already married to him...but she might just hold off on telling him that.
