George Sullivan's life is a disaster in progress. His last few books haven't sold well, he drinks too much, he sleeps around, he's in hock for a gambling debt he can't repay and he'd probably trade his last friend for a best seller. His love life isn't faring much better, due to a bad breakup that still haunts him. When his agent arranges for him to write the memoir of notorious mob boss Vito Pasquale, it's the opportunity of a lifetime and a chance to make all his dreams come true. What George doesn't count on is falling for the Don's beautiful but spoiled daughter, Cookie. It's lust at first sight for both of them, but George resists her blatant come-ons and seduction attempts because he fears how her father might react. When Cookie begins a relentless campaign to snare him it's only a matter of time before George caves in, but what if things don't work out between them? Will he end up in the middle of Lake Erie wearing a cement overcoat for dallying with the Don's daughter? Will Vito insist on a shotgun wedding to preserve Cookie's honor? Worse yet, when George finally achieves the success he's always wanted, will it be a hollow victory if Cookie isn't there to share it with him?
