A professional cook and single mother finds her career is jeopardized when she falls for a high-ranking politician

Kate McKinnon is 36 and mother to five-year-old Toby. She has a small but thriving business catering for private clients. Her life is on an even keel—until, that is, she gets a job cooking lunch at the Foreign Office and has her first fateful meeting with Oliver Stapler, Secretary of State.

Who cares whether Kate's affair with Oliver is true or not? It’s a great story and will shift a ton of newspapers—and destroy several lives in the process.
