Kat Ellis is looking for the right man -- now! The position comes with a few requirements. The qualified candidate should have the ability to make ex-boyfriends jealous, to turn heads whenever entering a room and to reduce any woman to a weak-kneed, besotted admirer. Kat wouldn't be so urgently in need were it not for her spoiled half sister's wedding, where the best man happens to be Kat's handsome ex-boyfriend. What's worse, the currently single Kat has to schlep all the way from New York to London, where her wildly dysfunctional family lives. Kat does what any enterprising single woman would do -- she hires a professional escort. So what if her solution crosses a few morally dubious lines and costs her a tidy 6,000 bucks? Lucky for her that she hires Nick Mercer, one of New York's better known and in-demand professional male escorts. Once in England, the insightful and charismatic Nick helps Kat navigate the choppy waters of her screwy family and caddish old flame Jeffrey and convinces everyone he meets that he and Kat are an item. As Nick charms Kat's parents, Bunny and Victor Ellis, her self-absorbed half sister Amy, Amy's fiancÃ©e Edward and every living, breathing woman within a 100-kilometer radius, Kat finds herself feeling things she's never felt before. What begins as merely a face-saving ruse with a dashing guy-for-hire quickly becomes more than Kat ever expected."
