If Hanna Rockwell isn't married by the time she reaches her 30th birthday, she will lose her home, Rockwell Place, and her entire inheritance.
Hanna's mother and brother, who also live at Rockwell Place, are desperately afraid they're going to lose their home and allowance. Their constant nagging at Hanna to find someone to marry has driven her to challenge them.
"Start planning the wedding, Mother. And Will, you find the groom. And I'll get married on my 30th birthday!"
Feeling confident that her plan will never work, Hanna is dismayed when Will announces that Matt Corbett has agreed to marry Hanna.
The Matt Corbett? The has-been rock star who was her teen-age idol? No way!
Matt Corbett can't believe the string of events that has led him to decide to marry a stranger. But he's determined to get back on his feet. And he's determined to make his former manager pay dearly for getting him in the financial ruin that he's in. Yes, he'll marry Hanna Rockwell so he'll have a place to live, just long enough to jump-start his country music career.
But he hadn't counted on falling in love with her.
