Delilah accidently sends in one of her scripts on the back of Jason's report notes about Biosensual, a product which is supposed to have aphrodisiac effects but contains a dangerous ingredient which can cause death. The producers of the soap opera think the notes are Delilah's script idea and they start her writing a whole new story based on Biosensual. But soon after the new story line starts on air, someone appears to be trying to kill Delilah. That is when she begins to suspect that Ford is not a plumber, but an FBI agent. When a bomb goes off in Delilah's closet, she also finds evidence of other women's clothes and letters from two women her husband has slept with. Delilah starts considering Ford as more than an object of fantasy and also needs his help to find out who wants her dead.
