When children's book illustrator, Elaina McIvor, is handed an 11-month-old baby to care for, she thinks the doctor who brought Betsy to her is as crazy as, well...the stork! She knows nothing about babies, and sure doesn't want a crash course forced on her.
Dr. Brent "Brad" Bradshaw, has no idea why his very ill patient, baby Betsy's single mom, has begged him to take her baby to the stiff-necked old maid Miss McIvor, but he's too stressed and too busy as Chief of ER to make other arrangements. Elaina is just going to have to cope - somehow.
Elaina copes by demanding his help and knowledge, which, as she begins to unwind, charmed by Betsy as well as the overworked doctor, he seems more and more willing to give. But both have been married, both have been hurt, both have sworn privately "never again".
So how can two dedicatedly single people hope to have more than a brief relationship - even after they realize they're falling in love?
