It feels like history repeating itself for Stevie, but this time she is determined to win back her man. She isn't going to act as he might expect. She isn't going to wail and dig her heels in, she is simply going to pretend to let him go whilst she pursues a mad course of dieting, exercising and self-improvement.\fs20 \par \fs18 And it feels like history is repeating itself for Adam MacLean too, who is also determined to win his lady, Jo, back with the same basic psychological tactics. Then he is going to initiate his master plan: Getting together with Stevie to drive Jo wild with jealousy. \par \fs20 \fs18 There's just one problem - but it's a big one. Adam and Stevie know each other by reputation and hate each other before they have even met. If Stevie hadn't been a complete slattern and mother from hell, Jo would never have had to comfort Matthew, so thinks Adam. And if Adam hadn't been a big, Scottish, wife-battering thug, Jo never would have turned to Matthew for comfort, so thinks Stevie. But when Stevie's plans to lure Matthew back fail dismally, she has no choice but to assist Adam in his crazy scheme.\fs20 \par \fs18 So, like the Scottish country jig \fs20 'The Birds and the Bees'\fs18 , the couples all \par change partners and learn some revealing truths about each other along the way. But what happens when Adam's master plan actually starts to work? And just who will Stevie be dancing with when the music stops?\lang2057\fs20 \par }
