Piper Elliott has always dreamed of attending the glittering Harlequin Ball. Each summer the ball is held at the exclusive country club where Piper is a waitress, but only the most glamorous people in the resort town of Kittery Cove are invited. This year, however, Piper is determined to go to the ball - on the arm of elusive summer resident David Barkley.
Then Piper meets wild and crazy Max, who almost steals her heart. But Piper can't give up her dream of mingling with the elegant crowd at the Harlequin Ball. When Max promises to get her into the ball, Piper wonders if he could be the Prince Charming to make her Cinderella-summer fantasy come true.Â
