This is the story of Lauren Danner, a woman who is talked into industrial spying by her family's who never gets the high bid on their building projects. As soon as she gets hired, she goes off for a weekend of fun with Nick Sinclair, a man she met the night before. After starting her new job a few weeks later, she finds that Nick is the president of the company she is spying on.

Lauren is too naive for my taste. Nick could be the poster boy for sexual harrassment in the workplace. I'm sure this book was popular when it was published in 1984, but times have changed and this book feels dated. It's not one of McNaught's best.
