But a knock on the door forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary matinee idol Jack Montgomery's vast fortune. How did Jack Montgomery know her name?

Soon Jack’s famous daughters come knocking, determined to wrestle Cassie away from the inheritance they feel is their due.
