On the run from her controlling brother and a life of privilege, Amanda Collingsworth stumbles across three children abandoned by their nursemaid. She rescues them and poses as their mother to avoid capture by the detectives her brother hired.
Hurt too many times by women, Jake Tyrell no longer believes in happily-ever-after. Despite his vow to never marry, he promises to provide a home for his dying brother’s children. When the nursemaid arrives with the children, she is not the woman he expected. Although beautiful, she can’t cook, clean, or wash, and worse, she believes in a fairy tale life which includes love and marriage.
While living under the same roof to care for the children, Amanda is attracted to Jake who can be protective and charming, but she discovers he doesn’t believe in love, only lust. As her feelings for him grow, her body craves his touch, but can she ever hope to win his heart?
