When Madeline gets a new job as a trust officer at a bank, she quickly discovers her clients are a whole new level of quirky. There’s the aging widower whose ‘nurses’ have the outfits but not the qualifications, the man with the invisible best friend, and the hypochondriac former child actress. Spoiled and jobless, these exasperating clients are a constant test of Madeline’s professional demeanor. At least she can leave all that behind when she exits the office.
Life outside of work seems to be more sane. Writing Regency romances exercises her snark muscles. She has a one night flirtation at a bar with hottie Damien, but he doesn’t want things to go any further. She’s afraid he’s the one that got away until he searches her out. As they start dating, she discovers Damien is the perfect partner for banter, and he proves that not all rich guys are like her clients. Just when she thinks she’s found her dashing hero and is winning at everything, her private life and business life collide. She’ll need to be pluckier than her favorite heroines to figure out what she wants. Although she’s used to only trusting herself, to get her happy ending she’ll need to take a leap of faith.
