Her clients are fooled thinking she is in this perfect passionate relationship like a happy endings fairy tale, but it is far from the truth. The relationship very stale and bland, she even accepts his proposal just because in my opinion because it's safe . Definitely no fireworks and passion as you can tell from her very bland ok answer. No words of love or tears of joy and happiness. Her only escape from this hell is in her dreams where Mr. Right is her dream man, the perfect knight in shining armor. Then her lovely dream turns deadly into a nightmare as her Prince Charming of male perfection is killed. From there she decides a vacation is just what she need from reality and night terrors to clear her head per say. Her destination is Ireland to look up her ancestor history of Clan O'Rourke .

It has been 20 years and still O'Rourke's daughter is still missing and he must have a wife as it is necessary and required to lead the clan,. Then in the middle of a rescue mission the woman he had been dreaming about for years shockingly is right in front him.
