Lovely redheaded Audrey Rush decided to humor her old friend Jacob Leyfield by going to Leyfield Hall to nurse Jacob's step-brother, Dean, who had been injured in an auto accident in which his cousin, Ward DeWitt, had been killed. Audrey had known Ward in the old days, and even had been a little in love with him, but she was not prepared for the shock of seeing how closely Dean resembled Ward&mash;so closely, in fact,that they could have been twins.
Dean has been suffering from a mild case of amnesia, and can't seem to remember what has happened to a file of secret formulas that his father had been working on—formulas that would greatly enhance Leyfield Plastic's reputation as an innovative manufacturing company. Since Jacob is now saddled with running the firm by himself, with no help from Dean, he becomes convinced that Dean is out to undermine the success of the family firm. And when he confronts Audrey with his suspicion that Dean is really Ward, she rebels and threatens to leave Leyfield Hall altogether: her problem is that she has already succumbed to Dean's charm and persuasiveness.
How Jacob convinces Audrey that her job at Leyfield Hall is two-fold—to nurse and to discover the truth about Dean—is the crux of this romantic and suspenseful story about a private-duty nurse.
