Being found under a laurel bush in the local park isn't the best start in life. Neither is being given the name 'Laurel Parks' as a memento, but the girl who began like that is determined not to let it hold her back. When a runaway lorry crashes into the restaurant where she works, Laurel is the heroine of the hour, saving the life of her favourite elderly customer. It just so happens that her favourite customer's godson is the gorgeous and rich Daniel French. Injured and unable to work, Daniel offers her a place to stay. Used to women throwing themselves at him, he expects Laurel to make the most of the opportunity. But Laurel remains cool and calm, resisting their growing attraction, until Daniel asks her to pose as his fiancée. It's all just pretend, right?
