"If it proves so, then loving goes by haps; Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps."
Beatrice Rossi is the chief of staff to the Vice President of the United States. Benedick Holden is the Press Secretary. Their lives have been chaos ever since that night eight years ago when their elevator makeout was interrupted by the news that Pedro Aragones would be the next President of the United States. Things have gone a bit sour since then.
With the wedding of Beatrice's cousin to a rookie speechwriter fast approaching, their friends and family get the idea to create a little chemistry between the two bickering political allies. What else is there to do with a lame duck session than play Cupid?
But the President's brother, John, has slanderous plans of his own. His jealousy will test the lovers and create an unprecedented scandal for America's sweethearts.
