Italian opera singer Sofia de' Medici wants one thing: to sing Carmen in a first-rate New York opera house. When she escapes the clutches of her domineering father, she thinks she's home free. Only she can't get an audition with the opera house's general manager to prove she has it in her to be Carmen, the gypsy seductress.
Major League baseball star Car Bradford wants one thing: to get his son away from his unfit ex-wife. In order to do that, he needs the help of his ex's dad (and his boss) who demands a strange ransom — pretend to be having an affair with a beautiful, curvy opera singer who needs to prove she's a femme fatale.
The trouble is neither wants anything to do with the other. They have nothing in common. She's quirky; he's conventional. He hates her shoes; she hates his truck. She loves food; he sees it as fuel.
But then, as they spend more time together, their awkward charade grows into a passion neither of them expected. Can the star athlete and the sensuous diva get past their differences long enough to realize that within each other they've both found the one thing they never knew they always wanted?
