Melanie Parsons is a curator
at the Smithsonian, specializing in nineteenth and twentieth century artifacts.
A rash of burglaries causes Brady Torres, a member of United Americas Security,
to be called in to investigate.
Melanie comes from a Traditionalist family, a fundamental group of individuals
who want to return to the ideals of an earlier time. Although she doesn’t
believe in those ideals, especially when it comes to marriage, she has two
little secrets. She loves for a man to control her in the bedroom and the
particular man she is longing to take that control is none other than Agent
The UAS believes Traditionalists are behind the burglaries, but Brady is not
sold on the idea and proposes they use a wedding dress from the 1800s as bait to
capture the thieves. The dress, from Melanie’s own family, is the one thing that
keeps Brady believing he might have a chance with Melanie. He figures she
wouldn’t keep the dress around if she didn’t secretly harbor a desire to find
true love and marry for a lifetime.
If Brady loses the dress to the thieves will he also lose his chance with

L'UAS crede che i
tradizionalisti siano dietro i furti, ma Brady non ne è sicuro e propone di
usare un abito da sposa del 1800 come esca per catturare i ladri. Il vestito,
appartenuto alla famiglia di Melanie, è l'unica cosa che trattiene Brady dal

his attractive new neighbor. She rescues his lost son, but instead of thanking
