Accomplished daughter of a member of Parliament, Melissa Romney-Jones can’t hold a job until she starts her own business as a freelance girlfriend, helping feckless bachelors arrange social functions and sometimes acting the part of date.

More personal complications arise when one of Honey’s clients, American real estate broker Jonathan Riley, books the Little Lady agency on a regular basis. Soon Melissa and Jonathan are engaged, much to the consternation of Melissa’s roommate Nelson. When Melissa has to split her time between planning her wedding and her job, Jonathan becomes domineering – to the point of insisting she close her business to join him in Paris – forcing her more into the company of her client Prince Nick and Nelson. When Nelson insists that she help him find a new roommate, Melissa re-examines her own priorities and realizes that Nelson is the right man after all.Learn more about Literature
