Paula Ward, impetuous co-owner of a cleaning service, finds herself in an awkward position with computer magnate Tom Clinton. She’s slipping into a slinky gown in his lavish bathroom when the handsome millionaire arrives unexpectedly, catching her half-clad – and putting him in a compromising position with his guests, an ultra-strait-laced couple with whom he’s about to sign a mega-deal. Paula has to pose as his wife, never imagining the ruse will sweep her away to France and pit her in a losing battle with her heart, and Tom’s.
