Twenty-four year old hardworking plain jane Bethany is offered a temporary live-in job working for the wealthy Redfern family. After settling into her new job and with living away from under her pretty older sister’s shadow, Bethany begins to blossom. She loves her new job and employers but dislikes their spoiled grandson Jude, who the Redfern’s raised from a baby after the death of his parents. Jude is an arrogant good-looking man who has women falling at his feet and Bethany’s dislike for him peaks his interest in her. At first, he sees her as a challenge but soon falls in love with her. Can Jude change his ways to win the girl of his dreams before her placement ends and she returns home?
