The trap is set – but which of them is the bait?

Journalist Penny Blackthorne is looking for her first big scoop. When her sleazy editor asks her to use her charms on super successful – and married – film director Sebastian Winchester for a juicy exposé, Penny thinks what the hell? There’s a staff job on the horizon, and no one can make a cheater cheat if they don’t want to, right?

After the scandal breaks, Penny tries to put the story – and Seb – behind her, but fate seems to have other ideas. A near miss at a premiere after-party and a shared love of vintage film brings the honey closer to the trap.

But what happens when pretence leads to passion, and a ‘kiss and tell’ becomes something real?
