Katy's investment in a rental property pays an unexpected dividend when she catches the eye of the artist upstairs. Although she's not used to being considered good-looking, Daniel wants to draw her. They have little in common, but are they different like oil and water or like match and gunpowder? Katy's sensible side warns her that being tied down in a long-term relationship is the last thing Daniel wants, but the fizz his spontaneity brings to her life keeps her seeing him. Daniel isn't an alpha male who expects Katy to fall in line behind him—he admires her without trying to control her. Her business sense complements his creativity, and their relationship develops into something enchanting, but, Katy fears, insubstantial. Then a household accident injures Daniel's painting hand and pulls them apart. Katy thinks their affair has burned out, but instead, a new passion is being born.
