Social worker, Maggie O'Hara, arrives at the Minneapolis airport where she awaits the arrival of her family welcoming her home for Thanksgiving. She has a surprise for them in her arms-her newly adopted baby girl from Korea. With little thought, Maggie grabs a stranger getting off the same airplane, and asks him to portray himself, temporarily, as her fiancé. She knows that her old-fashioned family will disapprove of the adoption because she's not married. What Maggie doesn't count on is falling in love with Dr. Nick Capra, who does more than a passable job of posing as her fiancé that day, and over the holiday week.
From the moment Maggie snags Nick, a confirmed bachelor, his gut tells him his single days are over and that she's the woman for him.
