Sinclair Lewis spends one night in Hunter’s bed, and then walks out. Months later, Hunter becomes the CEO of Luscious Lavender, the same company that employs Sinclair. While Sinclair talks business, Hunter is thinking about their one nightstand. Hunter remembers just how sweet she looked in his bed. Sinclair knows she can use their past to further herself in the company, but she doesn’t want to do business that way. Although, she wouldn’t mind being a part of Hunter’s private life.
