Mallory Katherine Bellsford is about to get married to Brandon Collins when Brandon’s very pregnant girlfriend comes running down the aisle saying she objects to the marriage. Mallory walks out and into a taxi to get away. There in the taxi she meets her guardian angel, Jonathan Ryan MacFarland, who is the taxi driver. Jonathan tells Mallory “Your life as a pampered rich girl is over. Your new life begins today. You must find and give love, only then will you be able to regain your old life.” Mallory tries to make the best of the situation by selling her wedding dress at a thrift store. This is where Mallory first meets Adam Chandler and his four-year old daughter, Hope.
Whoever said love at first sight exists was not talking about Mallory and Adam.

So when Adam rescues Mallory from a guy at Moe’s, the bar where she started working, they strike a deal to marry each other. After they are married Mallory runs into her father. Her father can’t believe what Mallory has done but he tells her that she is penniless and on her own for a year till she learns to grow up. Now all Mallory has is Adam and his daughter Hope. So will Mallory and Adam choose the happy ending or does fate have other plans for these two?
