Cecily has been telling little white lies for years, both to her husband Carlton, and her mother Venia. With her husband on another continent, and her mother across the country in Corbin's Bend, what could the harm be?
Everything seems fine until Carlton gets transferred to Denver, and they decide to spend the holidays with her mom in Corbin's Bend. Carlton doesn't tolerate lying - and he refuses to stretch the truth to accommodate the lies she has already told, one of which is letting her mother believe that her and Carlton also practice domestic discipline. Cecily can't bear to strain their already tenuous relationship by admitting the truth, so Carlton offers a solution. When in Corbin's Bend, do as they do.
She doesn't count on being there longer than a week, and she certainly doesn't plan on falling for the town, the people in it, OR her husband's new dominant ways. Will Cecily's web of lies lead her to everything she has ever wanted?
