Alan John’s sexual appetite has exhausted every woman he’s ever dated. Guilt-ridden following a brief fling with a married woman, he’s chosen to abstain—until he spots Emily Carmichael at an ice cream parlor.
A lifetime of romantic disappointments has left Emily too depressed to respond to Alan’s overtures. He writes his number on a napkin, insisting she call him if she ever changes her mind. When Emily realizes what an opportunity she’s missed, she can’t find the napkin—or Alan—anywhere.
In desperation, she asks her brother if he knows anyone named Alan. An hour later, her brother arrives with the right Alan in tow. Alan is the most insatiable man Emily’s ever encountered, and he’s exactly what she needs. But will a secret involving a former lover destroy their newfound bliss?
