It seems that Bryan has everything going for him, he is polished and intelligent, but he is not in love with Kate. Finally, Bryan makes his feelings known and calls off the wedding engagement at a highly publicized event. Now, a devastated Kate is not only dealing with the shock of the breakup with her longtime fiancé, she will experience tremendous humiliation in front of thousands of fans, which is sure to jeopardize her career as a love expert.
Just as she is about to face the greatest discomfiture of her life, Lucas Wright swoops in and helps Kate dupe her fans by pretending to be her fiancé.
