Millie Stephens is the personal assistant to an author of romance novels in New York. Millie is a mouse of a woman, dressing down in all brown, brown hair, glasses and timidly shy.
Millie loves her job, but little does she know that her life is about to change.
One day while running an errand for her boss, Darcy Butler-Ryan, Millie wasn’t watching and someone pulled her back at a crosswalk just before being struck down by a large truck.
The benefactor she didn’t see held her in the air and tight against his chest. Millie was in for a surprise.
When Millie saw who helped her, thug was the first word to pop into her head.
Shaken, she finished her errand and then back to Darcy’s brownstone and back to work.
While at work, Millie thinks about her close call. From reading and hearsay she thought about how people in her situation have their life run before their eyes. Hers reel is blank, her life is nothing, she is nothing.
Then one day while Millie is out, her thug comes to Darcy about converting a room into a nursery for her impending delivery.
Millie returns to the brownstone while Darcy is out. Hearing noises from upstairs, Millie goes to investigate. There in a room is her thug. A contractor working on the room. Millie turns to leave but her notices her and speaks. Millie is tongue tied and nervous.
She hurries out and tries to settle down.
Over time, through a comedy of errors, Millie begins thinking about her life and the dream she wants to explore but doesn't have the courage, plus feelings of conflict while working for Darcy.
