When first man Jane Little gave her heart to tore it into a million pieces, she decided that love is a myth, a placebo people take to simulate happiness in their lives. Every man she dated afterward only served to confirm her hypothesis.
Jane instead determines to show the world she is a rational adult, performing administrative work at the local community college and keeping her heart behind lock and key. Too bad she only feels like she's truly in control when she has a paint brush in her hand...
Enter Dr. Adrian Garrett, a man who evokes Greek statues and a primal lust in Jane that rocks her orderly little world. Forced to work closely with Adrian, Jane finds her resolve slipping as he gets a little too close for comfort.
