He thought it was all a game...until he grew accustomed to her face.
Henri Higgins is bored by everything – his life, his work, even the models he regularly sees socially (and privately). So when a close friend suggests a high–stakes, friendly competition, a 'fame' game, Ree leaps at the opportunity for a little shake–up in his daily routine. The rules are simple: the competitors are to take the first person that they meet at a certain time and make them as famous as possible within two weeks.
But Ree doesn't expect Elizabeta.
Elizabeta Flores del Fuego has a plan. An office manager by day, she moonlights at a number of creative Canberra businesses by night to learn all she can about the fashion industry and put her in the best place possible to help launch her beloved daughter, Angelina's design career. Cleaning the office of Higgins Publishing is just one of those jobs, but when Henri Higgins offers her a week's worth of work and a paycheque large enough to get Angelina Designs on its feet, it's an offer she can't refuse.
But Elizabeta doesn't expect Ree, and neither expect the lessons in love they're both about to learn.
