From the moment he steps off the plane, Luke Johnson knows there’s been a colossal mistake. How else can you explain the fact that a man who’s content to live in a one-bedroom apartment without so much as a plant to keep him company has inherited an estate in — of all places — New Jersey? Not just an ordinary estate, either. This one comes complete with a mansion, a conservatory and some unusual residents along with one very normal, very beautiful woman named Jenny Coleburn. This is not what Luke needs. No, sirree.
If Luke’s unhappy, so is Jenny. She’s just gotten her life and her daughter back on track after the divorce, and now they may lose their home to a man who’s as allergic to children as he is to cats.
As far as Jenny can see, this is one story that holds no promise of a happy ending. But the fates and her matchmaking housemates think differently. And sometimes, when it’s least expected, love blossoms.
