When sexually-charged business woman, Stephanie Spicer, tries to land new business accounts for her creative agency, things seem like an uphill struggle. Matters are made worse when a senior staff member at one of the valuable prospective companies turns out to be Stephanie’s ex-lover, Geoff Thorne—and he wants to re-start their relationship.
After distracting herself with a one-night stand with a journalist, she takes relationship advice from her photographer friend, Zoe Clarke. Worldly-wise Zoe makes her realize that only by getting back together with her absent American lover, Rick Martin, will she ever be truly happy.
As she arrives at an exclusive London hotel, Stephanie is taken by surprise when she finds staff, friends, and relatives have gathered together to celebrate her birthday. The joy of being with so many special friends takes Stephanie’s mind off her predicament, but when she hears that there is a man waiting outside to speak to her she is set for a final showdown.
Can Stephanie put the pain caused by her former lover behind her and try to win the account, even if it means compromising herself and risking further heartache? Or will the fate of her own true happiness ultimately be sealed by her own dangerous beauty?
