When indie perfumer Dahlia Dubois reluctantly steps in to lead the iconic, international perfume house her grandmother founded, she soon discovers that nothing is as it seems -- including the intriguing man she met in Cannes, France, who turns out to be Alain Delamare, a legendary Formula 1 race car driver.
Soon, tensions rise in Monaco, where Dahlia juggles a search for her missing mother, a corporate takeover, and a volatile, passionate relationship with Alain -- just days before the glamorous Monaco Grand Prix race. As long-held family secrets emerge and threaten her future, Dahlia must find the courage to face the dangerous truth.
