That's what Tessa McGuiry needs, and it takes a very special ten-year-old to make her see it. When Tessa meets Wes in the alley behind the exclusive boutique where she works, she knows she has to do something to help the homeless boy. But after his mother falls ill and Tessa volunteers to let him stay at her apartment, she begins to wonder if she's taken on too much.
Thank goodness for Keaton Phillips. The handsome cop who lives in her building is great with Wes...if only he'd be just as great with her. But the two of them haven't exactly gotten along in the past. Keaton is serious and dedicated to his job--and seems to think of her as nothing but a flighty, high-maintenance socialite-in-training. Tessa knows she's got more to offer than perfectly manicured nails and a pretty face. What will it take for him to see it, too?
