Born into a real-estate dynasty, Brandt Wainwright chose American football over the family business and now he's a Super Bowl quarterback. But one day, his streak of good fortune runs out and he crashes his car into a tree. During the long recuperation process, the fun-loving Brandt becomes cranky and sullen - until private nurse Ciara Dennison begins to cheer him up. Ciara has no interest in sports, or in tall jocks with overblown egos. But somehow, Brandt just keeps breaking down her defences, seeing through her facade to the sexy free spirit beneath.
