In this British romantic comedy, an aspiring party planner’s first charity ball is an occasion for love . . .
Leaving her dead-end job to pursue a career in event management, Stevie Winfield is determined to prove that she can make it on her own. Life is going to be a ball—and Stevie’s going to organize it. On her first assignment, a charity soirée at a manor in Oxford, she has plenty to think about without Tom Blackwood showing up. The client’s son also happens to be Stevie’s old teenage crush.
These days, Tom is pushing himself to become the success his mother wants. When he learns that a friend’s sister, “poor needy little Stevie,” is in charge of his mother’s event, he dashes home to ward off disaster. But Stevie isn’t so needy anymore. She’s grown into a sexy, self-assured young woman. And while she isn’t about to let anyone get in the way of her dream, she just might have time to plan a party for two . . .
