Cassie also wanted to escape the Las Vegas life style, and has just finished a course in restaurant management, but the last person she wants to work for again is Keir O'Connell. She's very attracted to him, and they shared a passionate kiss a few months ago, but it was evident afterwards that Keir thought she wasn't good enough for him. Keir knows Cassie's background and doesn't think that she can handle the job, but he makes her so mad that she decides to enforce her employment contract and keep the job.

Keir and Cassie both feel that they come from two different environments. Keir is well-bred and educated. Cassie ran away from a bad home life when she was seventeen, and she's had to work as a showgirl, stripper, and cocktail waitress to survive. Eventually the attraction between them is too strong to resist though, and they become lovers. To their mutual surprise, the more time they spend together, the more they want to be together. But Keir can't get Cassie's past out of his mind, and Cassie's past experiences have made her distrust men. Neither one is sure they can have a future together.
