Rosalind Parry's life took a turn downhill when her restless father left her mother to pursue a dream. Back on track with a good job, a steady man (without anything as dangerous as a dream in his head) and marriage on the horizon, she is content.
Everything changes on her birthday when a man with a saxophone walks into her office and plays a stunningly beautiful blues rendition of happy birthday and, while she's still struggling to get her breath back, kisses her.
From that point it's as if this newly awakened sleeping beauty has boarded an out of control roller-coaster. Hard as she fights to keep on the straight and level, cling to the life she's planned, Jack Drayton won't let up. He's determined to stop her from sleepwalking into a life that he warns her will have her bored and climbing the walls withing months.
Is she more like her father than she will admit? Could she, would she, throw her cap over the windmill for a penniless stranger? And what will this newly awakened beauty do when she finds out that Jack has lied to her?
