Adrian Payne just lost his job, he can't pay the rent or the stack of bills on his kitchen table, and he has no prospects whatsoever. Drinking his troubles away at the local bar, he comes upon a "bachelorette party" for Janelle McKay, daughter of the wealthiest family in town.
Sensing an opportunity, he sets his sights on the other daughter, the unattached Joslin. But the beautiful young woman shoots him down all too efficiently. Dejected and drunk, Adrian sulks and begins to entertain a more extreme way to make some of the McKay wealth his own: instead of picking up Joslin, he'll just kidnap her and ransom her off! Soon he has the beautiful brunette spirited away and bound and gagged in his apartment.
With a helpless, struggling girl in his apartment, he proceeds to put his ransom plot into action, only to meet with a set-back he could never have anticipated. See how kidnapper and victim discover that they have more in common than they ever imagined, and learn of the dark secret that connects their families. But most of all, find out if the spark of mutual attraction can overcome the bonds of captivity and the desperation of a reluctant abductor.
