Edinburgh socialite Ellie has run away from her powerful father and the scandal that destroyed her perfectly balanced life. Now she is a rookie reporter, searching for her first breakthrough story and hiding out in her newly purchased apartment. After weeks of lying low and trying to stay out of the gossip pages, she attends a mixer party, hoping that a one-night stand with a stranger might help her forget the past. She chooses a partner poorly and quickly regrets it, but then is rescued by tough, enigmatic Mack. The attraction between them is sizzling, the sex electrifying. Waking to find him gone, Ellie wonders if she will ever see him again. And then a chance encounter with her new neighbours reveals that he lives two doors away from her… with another woman.
