............................................................................................ Sometimes the best things come from unexpected places . . .

Raised in the privileged world of Upper East Side Manhattan, Violet Townsend always says the right things, wears the right clothes, and never rocks the boat. So when a friend of her beloved grandmother asks Violet to teach her newly discovered grandson how to fit in with the city's elite, Violet immediately agrees. Her task? To prepare Cain Stone to take his place as heir to his family company . . . but he's not exactly an eager student.

Born and raised in rural Louisiana, Cain is only playing along for the payout at the end. He's not interested in a relationship with the grandmother he just met and has no patience for the uppity Violet's attempts to turn him into a suit-wearing, museum-attending gentleman.

But somewhere between antagonistic dinner parties and tortured tux fittings, Cain and Violet begin to find a begrudging respect for each other - and perhaps even something more.
