Margo Montgomery was attracted to James Stenbeck, who was married. Margo's mother, Lyla revealed that Dr. John Dixon was her real father. Margo learned the truth when district attorney Tom Hughes questioned Lyla as a witness during Dee Stewart's trial for rape charges. John was involved in a hit and run accident, he pretended to be blind and Margo asked him to stay with her at the house on Stenbeck estate. Somehow, John believed James was involved in his accident, and if he went to stay with Margo at the Stenbeck estate, he could learn the truth. James became suspicious of the accusations and threatened to take his life with a knife. When Margo learned of an affair James was having with Connie Wilson, she ended their relationship. Margo decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. She started to work at the law office of Lowell, Collman and Hughes as an assistant. Meanwhile, she applied to the police academy. She was now Tom Hughes's assistant. They fell in love, but Tom was involved with Maggie Crawford, Margo's aunt. Margo passed her entrance exams at the police academy.
Margo and Tom went to France. She was skinny dipping and for the first time, they made love. Tom and Margo married in the fall of 1983. She became pregnant soon after, but later miscarried. When Tom left for Washington, DC to work on a crime, she was still suffering from the loss of her baby, confided in her friend, Hal, and slept with him. She became pregnant with Hal's baby. She couldn't face Tom, so she fled to Greece. When Tom found her, she was in labor and he delivered her son, Adam. Tom wanted to raise her son as his own. Margo became pregnant a few years later with Tom's baby. She had a son and they named him Casey.
A lot happened in Margo's life over the years. On one occasion, Margo was raped while on a family vacation. This caused a lot of tension between her and Tom. She found it difficult to pretend that it didn't happen. Margo was involved in a plane crash, and she suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in which she had to be put in an institution. This put a terrible strain on her relationship with Tom and her sons. She was eventually released and was able to get on with her life.
Margo became pregnant several years later with Tom's baby, but miscarried. At the same time, Tom was having an affair with Emily Stewart. Margo threw Tom out of the house when she found out about the affair. Emily became pregnant with Tom's baby. Margo couldn't deal with this and filed for a separation. Some time later, they renewed their marriage vows.
Margo became Hepatitis C positive from the rape that had occurred years ago, and needed a liver transplant to survive. Katie, her sister, donated part of her liver and Margo soon recovered. Katie also recovered and the two sisters bonded even closer. Her marriage to Tom was on solid ground now, and there was nothing that would come between them.
When a slasher was in town killing teens, Casey was stabbed and left to die at Raven Lake. Casey was able to take the killer down while chasing his girlfriend, Maddie. Casey was rushed to the hospital where he made a full recovery. Margo sympathized with Maddie since she learned that Maddie was raped. She allowed Maddie to move in and live with them until Maddie decided she could move out on her own. Maddie took her up on the offer. Tom and Margo sent their son, Casey off to college in the fall of 2006.
Tragedy struck in January 2007 when Daniel was kidnapped for revenge on Emily. During the search for him, Tom suffered a heart attack and had to undergo emergency surgery. For a moment, Margo was totally helpless, but Tom made it through surgery okay and now Margo is having a hard time keeping him in the hospital. Daniel was found.
Margo and Tom went on with their lives. Casey was released from prison and Margo tried to put their perfect life back together. Casey was keeping secrets and finally admitted that Matt was actually a friend from prison. Matt was working for Gray Gerard, who wanted to kill Margo, and kidnapped Casey to get to her. Tom saved the day and Margo killed Gray.
Soon after this, Margo learned that Casey and Emily were dating and tried to kill Emily; Casey stopped her but Margo was opposed to their relationship until she saw how connected the two were after they were poisoned. She tried to accept their relationship.
