New York fashion designer Celie Donovan returns home from work late one night to find her apartment building engulfed in flames along with everything she owns. Worse, when her boss learns Celie had left some of the projects she was working on in that apartment — Celie loses her job, too.

Matthew Patrick can’t believe the woman who helped break his sister’s heart would have the nerve to show up on his doorstep — much less accept his mother’s invitation to stay! But the longer Celie stays and the more he gets to know her, the less she fits the tainted image he has of her.
