While pursuing her dream of becoming a novelist, Theodora works as a secretary. The protagonist of her book is modeled after her boss, James, who is stubborn and hard on his assistants. But their similarities are no more than skin deep. Her protagonist is the ideal man—her boss is no match for him! So when the obstinate James falls in love with her, his passionate attempts to win her backfire. She assumes her boss is testing her, and instead of falling for his seductions, she works even harder to be the best possible secretary she can. James, meanwhile, only grows more and more attracted to Theodora!
