Heather Montgomery is a CPA who's almost 30, a size 14, and considers herself very ordinary-looking - she's sorta the stereotype of a CPA. She'd like to someday find someone to marry but so far, no luck. She's stuck being a bridesmaid for her not-so-nice cousin who ordered Heather's bridesmaid dress one size too small and enjoys belittling Heather.
Heather and her friend Alison like to go to McMillan's the local bar/restaurant, enjoy the food, drinks, and the "view" - especially Tony McCafferty. Tony is gorgeous, charming, and doesn't ever "see" Heather when she's at the bar - she's too plain - he's one of those guys that likes gorgeous empty-headed blondes.
Through a series of circumstances, both end up in Vegas, meet up with each other, drink way too much champagne and end up married. Unfortunately, Heather's family finds out about the wedding. Tony suggests that they pretend to be married for a month - it'll take that long for the annulment and Heather can save face with her family and at her cousin's wedding.
As the month progresses, they learn about each other. Tony seems shallow, loving and leaving women, just out for a good time. But he's basically a good guy and the more you learn about him, the more human and likeable he becomes. Heather is great - someone you can relate to - she knows she's smart but as her aunt keeps reminding her, she's not married (the true definition of success in Heather's family). And while Heather knows that she's a success, there's a voice inside her that wants someone like Tony to look at her and want her.
