When a tall, handsome, hunk in cutoff sweats gets in
Marnie Davis's face for hijacking his Laundromat
dryer, feathers fly. She calls him a barbarian. He calls
her a hooligan. Imagine her chagrin then, to find the
barbarian, Scott Langley, dressed like a GC model in
her law offices the next day. It turns out Scott is the
godson of one of the partners of the firm where
Marnie is forced to take Scott under her wings so
they decide to bury the hatchet. Despite their
growing attraction for each other, however, both are
determined not to forge any kind of new relationship.
They have been burned too badly by a partner in the
past. It takes a shocking tragedy to finally bring the
two lovers into each others' arms--only to have a
sensational trial, where they are opposing counsels,
tear them apart.
