Taylor is all out of options. After years of raising her beloved maternal half brother, her abusive stepfather suddenly demands custody just so he can have an heir. She tells her story to her former boss, Jackson, and he makes a startling proposal: that he and Taylor should get married as soon as possible and apply for custody of her brother. It's true that with the successful, world-famous film producer on her side, her stepfather wouldn’t be able to stand in her way—but why the offer? They were never more than boss and secretary. But Jackson soon explains it to her: "I want you to have my baby within the year."
