Dominick and Lonnie knew each other in college and though he was somewhat attracted to her she was dating his friend. Now he still wants Lonnie in his life and not only as email pen pals. He tries to make in roads with little success as she swings back and forth more than just a pendulum. However, his persistence begins to melt her heart, but Lonnie wonders if the IT hunk still desires her because she wants his hard drive for the rest of her life.

Fans of contemporary romance novels will enjoy Jill Winters amusing lighthearted romp. The humorous story line focuses on the misadventures of Lonnie in and out of the office. Any one who uses plum daiquiri lipstick is more than just eccentric as readers will find out when they read this book. After reading PLUM GIRL, fans will want Ms. Winters to provide a sequel starring Lonnie's sister and roommate Peach.
