Sam Cooper ("Coop") has just become the most eligible bachelor in New York City.

But Coop isn't interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status.
Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Coop's antique ring, and its—potentially scandalous—history in her family. But Coop is quickly becoming more than just her route to the ring.

He had no idea why she was here. “I was hoping we could…talk.” “Of course.” He extended his hand, gesturing for her to take a seat. Lexie lowered herself into one of the big chairs, recalling how as a child, she liked to swing her feet back and forth until Margaret would remind her that ladies crossed their legs at the ankles and didn’t fidget like boys.
