Plus-sized Sharon Beckford has made a good life for herself and her young son, building her real estate company from the ground up. But one thing is missing in her life—love. Though she privately crushes on one of her agents, the dashing Rolf Steiner, she never believes anything will come from it until he offers to escort her a charity ball she's attending. The wealthy Mrs. Pettigrew will be at the ball, a woman whose vast estate is rumored to soon be on the market, and if Sharon lands the account, she can afford more medical help for her chronically ill son.
Despite having Rolf on her arm, Sharon meets David Cutter at the ball, the very attractive nephew--and lawyer--of Mrs.Pettigrew. Sparks fly between them immediately, potential business mixing with pleasure.
But Rolf has plans up his sleeve that don't involve Sharon involving herself with David--or meeting Mrs. Pettigrew at all. And if she's not careful, she might lose everything she's been working for.
