Jocelyn Wentworth likes to take one day at a time. She's willing to live from paycheck to paycheck, although the pay that comes from her work as a full-time contest participant is often inconsistent. When Austin VanDoran, a staid, careful-to-the-point-of-boring postman enters her life, there is an unlikely but immediate attraction between them. Suddenly Austin is losing grip on his carefully organized life, and Joclelyn is taking a closer look at her own lifestyle. The differences in their personalities, however, threaten to snuff out that small flame of love.
