When Kat hooks up with Mac on her out-of-town sexcation, the last thing she expects is for their no-strings fling to turn into something deeper.
Katrina Meyers is a tough, brilliant wine-bar owner whose anxiety gets the best of her on her first-ever flight on an airplane. Luckily, a sexy stranger's guidance and support sees her through to the other side. Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie is in the business of giving wine tours to small groups, so it's no huge surprise when they meet up at a Napa Valley wine conference. They're attracted to each other and hook up for mind-blowing sex but agree that they're both too focused on work to let it turn into a relationship. Still, when Kat returns home, she's disappointed that Mac doesn't call—until he shows up at her job with a tour. Later, she's surprised to learn that he's recently moved into her building. As Mac and Kat get to know one another, issues with their parents come up. Kat, it turns out, is a certified genius who went to college at 16 and has a doctorate in psychology, largely because her scientist parents urged her to pursue something academic. Mac's father lost his job as a realtor and developed a gambling problem so serious he lost their home and drove away both Mac and his brother; the boys pay the rent on a place for their mom, who enables their father's addiction. If this doesn't seem like much of a plot, have no fear. There's a girl fight, a brief kidnapping, and a baby born. But the real story is the slow, sexy burn of Kat and Mac's relationship.
