All's fair in love and custody battles - but does the fighting have to be so much fun?
Danny Lawson is struggling to raise her twin sister's orphaned children and hold down a full-time job in a busy A&E department. Then the children's American uncle, Ross Fabello, contacts her out of the blue, under family orders to take the children back to meet their father's family.
Ross has money, time and, frankly, a formidable family that will not take no for an answer. So how come a mouthy nurse keeps managing to out-manoeuvre him? Danny's niece and nephew are all the family she's got. But, while she'd be the first to admit that Ross's family seems a little unhinged, she'd still love to have them - minus their sarcastic eldest son, of course.
So it's game on for a titanic battle of the wills... and the most unfortunate, irresistible sexual attraction. In this brilliantly funny and poignant tale of modern love and misadventure, the spoils of war are family. And maybe, just maybe, something more.
