A failed engagement has led 36-year-old Chaney Braxton from New York to Washington, D.C. Orphaned as a child, and now betrayed by her fiance, Chaney is through dealing with things that die, leave or wilt. No plants, no pets, no men. Until she meets half-black, half-Korean and wholly hot veterinarian Devin Rhym... Thing is, Devin is 28. And even if Chaney is willing to countenance the possibility of getting back in the water, she isn't sure she wants to do it with a tadpole. On the other hand, though there are older fish around, she can't deny that she wants this one.
