Josie does things her way. Sporting shockingly pink hair and striking clothes, she runs the historic Elmhurst Hall's tea room. Despite coming from an old-money family of high standing, there is nothing Josie despises more than doing what's expected of her. When a man arrives one day to take over the hall following the death of its former lord, Josie is alarmed to find he's the type of man she hates the most: the pushy, straightlaced aristocrat, William Radcliffe. He may be handsome, but his constant nagging has Josie at her wit's end. Enough is enough! She's not about to take orders from anyone!
