Description: Gabrielle has a high profile job presenting the weather on French TV. Despite Gabrielle's staunch work ethic, she values her privacy over her professional career and lives in a modest house with her aging mother. One day, renowned author Charles Saint-Denis is interviewed at the television station where Gabrielle works, and the two feel an instant, powerful connection. Later, at a book signing, the pair continues to flirt despite the presence of a spoiled, ultra-rich, pharmaceutical heir, Paul Gaudens -- who openly despises the writer and longs to claim Gabrielle as his own. Despite the fact that Charles is still happily married to his wife of 25 years, with whom he shares a home in a posh ultra-modern estate in the countryside, he and Gabrielle share an intimate afternoon at the author's nearby pied-a-terre. Later, as the potentially psychotic Paul steps up his pursuit of Gabrielle, the young woman begins to question the purity of intention of either of her suitors.
