Kate McKinnon is thirty-six and mother to five-year-old Toby.
She has a small but thriving business catering for private clients.
Her life is on an even keel. That is, until she gets a job cooking lunch at the Foreign Office and has her first fateful meeting with Oliver Stapler, Secretary of State.
He's powerful and charismatic, but also married and a father and totally out of bounds, yet she falls for him. When a journalist spots them together, he alerts the gutter press.
Who cares whether Kate's affair with Oliver is true or not?
It's a great story and will shift a ton of newspapers - and destroy several lives in the process.
