When twenty-something office worker Rachel spills wine all over herself and a devastatingly handsome older man at her friends' wedding reception, she little realises that it's the beginning of a heart-stopping journey of emotional discovery. Or that the gorgeous hunk she’s just dowsed in house red is the owner of the very company she works for!
Lawrence Brady is stunned to discover his state of weary ennui shattered by the beautiful woman who upends her glass of wine all over him. Rachel seems bold and eager for a sensual adventure… and he’s just the man to show her new horizons, in a thrillingly intense but short-lived no strings affair.
But what if their fling becomes more? Will Lawrence's secret sorrow destroy their chance of happiness and a future together? Or will Rachel’s troubled past make it impossible for her to give her heart to him?
