Not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Sharlene Cunning-ham is a mediocre individual working for a successful jewelry company. Known as the errand girl of her boss, although she is a private secretary, she is a studious, hardworking, and excitingly bubbly person.
Dramatic, Sharlene is a born professional busy body.
Applying for a free Pap smear check up in a newly opened and growing in popularity hospital in her neighborhood due to a promotion of Women's health, Sharlene's mediocre life explodes with more color when her Pap smear examination is confused for an insemination examination? Pregnant, Sharlene storms into the life of Nicholas Ross, the investor of the hospital. What happens when these two opposite people find themselves in an arranged marriage?
