When Hope Shepherd loses her trainer while boarding the 8.42 into Cardiff,
Cinderella couldn't be further from her thoughts. Painfully divorced, she's
all out of daydreams - and it's not a glass slipper, after all.
It's picked up, however, by a Prince Charming of sorts - DJ Jack Valentine,
who's just been divorced too. He appeals on his show for the owner to come
forward; a latterday princess being just what he needs...
Hope works as a publicist for the charity, Heartbeat, and is encouraged by
her boss to get Jack on board. A celebrity endorsement is exactly what
they're after, to raise the profile of their upcoming fun run.
So far, so good; a fairytale beginning - their mutual attraction's just too
strong to ignore. But this is the real world, and these are two damaged
people. With both of them determined not to risk another heartbreak, is a
happy-ever-after an impossible dream?
