Marriage - especially to each other - is the last thing either one of them would want.
This is the only matter upon which Chess Bradshaw and Cookie Thibideaux agree. Otherwise, lone wolf Chess thinks his deceased business partner's daughter is a featherheaded good-time girl. Bohemian Cookie thinks her dead father's best friend is a cold-blooded shark. But when the fragrance company they own together falters, their union is the only way to save it.
Aggravation is all either of them expects from the business-only deal, but it isn't long before they discover their long-held prejudices are wrong. In fact, if they're not very careful, they might start to like each other. But heaven help them if they fall in love. Too much is at stake for a foolish gamble like that.
