Valerie Anthrope is neurotic and a regimented loner whose life unfolds after a ‘chance’ encounter with a stranger who brings colour into Valerie’s otherwise grey world.
Valerie Anthrope nicknamed Misanthrope struggles with human connection. She struggles with social skills and tends to keep her emotions behind her tight control. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions. She’s a workaholic through choice—it stops the loneliness from eating her from the inside.
But everything changes when Valerie meets Ellen, her self-acclaimed fairy godmother. And it is Ellen who, by wanting to help Valerie, introduces her to her playboy nephew, Lex.
Smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-all, Lex Kendal thinks he’s God’s gift to women—until Valerie knocks him back. His interest is immediately piqued but Ellen warns him off, telling him that Valerie isn’t the kind of woman to cope with his ‘bed ‘em and dump ‘em’ mantra.
