Romy Fitzgerald's life is firmly on track. She runs a successful business, has great friends and knows what she wants. That was until her father died. Suddenly she's not sure about anything anymore. So when she has a one-night stand at a party with a stranger dressed as Darth Vadar, she tells him things she's never told anyone before ...about herself and her father's death. They'll never see each other again so her secrets are safe, right? Until Romy realises that she's pregnant with Darth Vadar's baby and now she has to face some awkward questions about what really happened the night of Luke's conception. Romy's going to have to come clean, but when her ex-boyfriend Kit Masterson returns from New York and seems happy to go along with the charade of playing the part of Luke's father, it seems like the answer to her prayers. Kit was the love her life, and maybe her secrets, and the true identity of Darth Vadar, can stay hidden forever. But Kit has his own reasons for coming home and buying into the ready-made family. And as masks slip and true identities show, Romy and Kit quickly discover that in real life secrets never stay hidden, especially when it comes to love ...
