When a kiss...
All reporter Sadie Barton wants is to be taken seriously and judged on her own merits, not her stepfather's money. She and her actress sister left Wisconsin to get out from under his controlling thumb and leave behind the malicious whispers that they're no better than their gold-digging mother. But California isn't all sun and fun, and paying the rent while trying to prove herself is harder than she ever imagined.
...is more than a kiss...
Something about Sadie drew self-made millionaire Zach Robinson--and it wasn't just the amazing kiss they shared as impromptu actors in his company's commercial. He's used to women being interested in his wealth, and Sadie's fierce independence is an enticing breath of fresh air. He's falling fast--until his brother suggests acting runs in her family and Sadie might not be exactly what she seems...

Summer Clark: Yes, I'm excited for my ten year class reunion - I flew all the way from Florida to Wisconsin so I could rub my success in Josh Nelson's face. I know it sounds vindictive, but the jerk ditched me at the Snowball dance, left me to find my own ride home, and never apologized. He's got it coming - if I can get a tow truck to come out in this freak May snowstorm and pull my rental car out of the ditch.
Josh Nelson: No, I'm not looking forward to the reunion. Just hearing the name Summer Clark brings back memories of a night I buried long ago and never talked about again. Seeing her means skirting the truth while trying to deliver a way-too-late apology. No, with this storm, I think I'll head home - as soon as I help this car sunk in the ditch.
