Snow falls hard outside the bar of a Boston hotel. Kay Westscott, a New York novelist and English teacher, is in town attending a writers’ workshop. Math professor Ann Ward is trying and failing to muster enthusiasm for a round of lesbian speed dating. When Kay spots Ann at the bar, she’s instantly attracted, and while it seems a romance writer might easily engage a single professor looking for love, Kay’s humorous flirtations do more to irritate than impress. Ann finds Kay’s pickup lines way out of line, and Kay tries to redeem herself by helping Ann rehearse for speed dating, all the while wishing it was more than just practice.
The chemistry is undeniable, but Kay and Ann part ways, only to realize they have a lesson in love coming—if they can just find each other again.
