She is a reporter and is planning to write an investigative piece to expose Galen's grandmother and her matchmaking company as a fraud. Why is she doing this?

But once Peyton gets to know Galen and Ellie, it soon becomes harder to go through with her plan, even if doing so could help her father.
Galen went into the marriage believing that it was the right thing to do for Ellie's sake and that he could make do with a loveless marriage. But Peyton opens something inside him. He is soon wooing her because he wants her in his bed. There is something growing between them that looks a lot like love. Will trust also develop? Will Peyton confess to Galen the real reason why she recited wedding vows with him? As each day counts down, the harder it is for Peyton to not feel guilty for not only what she is doing, but how it will also hurt Ellie. By the end of VENGEFUL VOWS, Galen and Peyton will learn something stunning that might change everything for this little family of three.
