Jack Wallis is a road-train driver with a secret. He has just become a top selling romance novelist. However, being a "mans man" in the Australian outback, to avoid embarrassment he needs a name, a woman's name - and he chooses that of his best friend, Ruby. When a glamorous city publisher shows up to sign "Ruby Vale" to a major book deal, Jack must do some fancy footwork to keep up the charade, including convincing the real Ruby Vale to play along. Like two fish out of water, and out of their depth, Jack and Ruby are drawn closer together as they cope with all the media attention of a whirlwind publicity tour. In the tradition of The Matchmaker and French Kiss, a comedy of errors ensues as two romantic triangles collide. But Jack and Ruby have a secret so closely guarded.... they haven't even told themselves!
