The fragrance and cosmetics’ department at prestigious Bartons On Fifth Avenue boasts some of the finest products in the world, along with the prettiest people to sell them. With movie-star looks and ambitions beyond his day job, Timothy Wilson fits right into the mix. While working as counter-manager for a prestigious fragrance line, Tim is also pursuing a Masters Degree in Dance at NYU. When his line is moved to a new selling bay within the department, Tim is thrilled to find his new counter located next to that of the handsome and debonair Colin Welling, a man he’s admired from afar for years.
Colin isn’t quick to jump into romance, however, after illness claimed the life of his longtime lover. But, as the Christmas season unfolds, the striking pair grows closer, both at work and outside of it. Unfortunately, Tim discovers that Steven Oberman has been hired to work at Bartons, too. One of Tim’s numerous lovers from the dance world, Steven becomes obsessed with getting Tim back. With this and other past indiscretions brought to light, Tim fears for his evolving relationship with Colin—whom he has come to regard as the man of his dreams.
