Susannah has been put in charge of PR for an art museum. Things get hectic when a wealthy man who was supposed to donate his collection meets an unexpected death. Of all people, his heir turns out to be Marc, Susannah's past lover. Although they had once been deeply in love, their difference in status had pulled them apart. Susannah is worried: "I can't believe I have to negotiate with him now." Marc almost seems to sense Susannah's desperate feelings, for he makes an astonishing announcement at a party. "I'll donate one painting for every time she goes to bed with me."
