Templeton was determined to not follow in his namesake’s path as a Cardiac
Surgeon. Was he smart enough for it? Of course, he was a genius after all. Did
he have the time and patience to master the craft? Absolutely. Was he going to
let his controlling grandfather hold his trust fund over his head until he
achieved what was expected of him? Hell no!
Fairchild was the redheaded stepchild. Literally. Smart, nerdy, picked on, and
often thought of as an outcast. Her social life was a dismal as her family
relationships, so she left when she could and made a new life somewhere else.
Unfortunately she found it was hard to break the mold of what cast her as
undesirable. Until she loses a bet with a coworker and has to be made-over for
a blind date. When that turns into another disaster she escapes to a bar to
nurse her emotional wounds, striking up a conversation with the sexy bartender
and wondering if she could keep up the ruse of the confident sexy chick she was
pretending to be.
