Dr. Augusta, Gus, Stuart has devoted her adult life to supporting the mental health of disadvantaged children. A move to head a new clinic in San Antonio prompts her to realize she should do something to build her romantic well-being. Her foray into the world of Internet dating dashes her hopes of finding a reasonable happy-ever-after partner. Desperate for one good date, she lets a friend set her up with her 'perfect' match.

Their prickly debates are somehow as unexpectedly fascinating as playing with matches, and Gus reconsiders what preconceptions she is willing to burn to find true love. But will she get burnt instead?
