Rachel borrowed her aunt's villa so that she could focus on writing her doctoral thesis. She has always cared more about her research than about looking fashionable, but she allows her aunt to give her a makeover for fun. As if she would ever wear anything this gaudy! As a result, Mel-a handsome surgeon she meets at a party-mistakenly assumes that Rachel must be the mistress of some extraordinarily rich man. To make matters worse, Mel has just moved in next door, and he says he wants her, even if she is just a high-class call girl who only wants money. Then he steals a kiss... Where is a sensible woman like Rachel, with no real romantic aspirations or prospects, supposed to go from here?
