Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets. She has secrets from her boyfriend (I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken), secrets from her mother (I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur), and secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world (I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is). Oh yeah, and she is afraid of flying.

Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, she is seized by mortal terror when the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she sleeps beneath a Barbie bedspread, that she fibbed to get her current job, and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then the plane lands, and rather than disappearing into anonymity, the American turns up in her life again. He’s the CEO of her company … and remembers her quite well.
