Melissa was shocked when the man calls her Lissa. The only one who'd ever called her that before was her childhood friend Nick. But in front of her stood a strong, handsome man, the complete opposite of the timid, skinny, glasses-wearing boy she'd once known! After not seeing each other for twenty years, Nick had come back into Melissa's life, and not a moment too soon. She was hurting, having just been abandoned by her fiance. After discovering that the other villagers gossip about and pity her, Nick suggests they pretend to be a couple. That way no one will pity her anymore, and maybe her fiance would even return!
