Avril Paulson, a beautiful American book collector, finds herself in possession of a much sought after book about romantic cobblestones and quickly thereafter sprawled out on a Paris sidewalk.
Being a true French gentleman, Émile Capet, a sexy book store owner, finds himself rescuing the beautiful fallen woman exhibiting a hint of lacy lingerie and walking her home.
Discovering they share a love of books, the two begin an awkward dance of the unknown, contemplating...
Are we right for each other or very wrong?
What is it that keeps us trying to connect?
Why can't we seem to walk away?
And the biggest question of all, will he ever kiss her?
