As the daughter of a famous Manhattan nightclub owner, Catherine is used to musicians chatting her up in hopes of getting a gig. She’s completely over that kind of guy. When she meets Hence, though, his passion and talent set him apart. Before Catherine realizes it, she’s fallen head over feet for him. But her brother, Quentin, isn’t impressed, and he’s determined to keep them apart. Catherine and Hence are forced to sneak around—and risk Hence’s livelihood—just to be together.
