New York. London. Milan. Paris. Fashion Week in all four cities. A month of endless interviews, parties, and unflagging work and attention to detail at the ready to wear fashion shows twice a year. At the center of the storm is American Timmie O'Neill, whose renowned line, Timmie O, is the embodiment of casual chic in fashion and for the home. She has created a business that inspires, fills, and consumes her life. With an unerring instinct for what the next trend will be, Timmie has built an international empire over two decades that has brought her enormous satisfaction and success. Yet as blessed as she feels, Timmie harbors the wounds of a devastating childhood and past tragedy. She is too hurt to want much in her personal life beyond a succession of very limited relationships. Always willing to take risks in business, she never risks her heart. But despite her highly controlled world, Timmie O'Neill is not immune to magic when it strikes. And it strikes during Paris Fashion Week, when an intriguing Frenchman comes into her life. At first, Timmie and Jean-Charles Vernier are only patient and physicians, but neither can deny their growing friendship and the electricity that sparks whenever they meet.
