Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this romance, an aspiring writer encounters a wealthy publisher who gives him an advance on the first two chapters of his book. Meanwhile, his wife helps out by becoming a chorus girl in a nightclub revue. Instead of enjoying the peace and quiet of home life, the poor writer finds himself inundated by unexpected visitors and minor household disasters. Among the visitors is a flirtatious Southern gal who tries to lure him away from his wife. At the same time, the publisher has become enamored of the husband's wife and tries to tempt her with his money. The wife thinks he is simply offering her more advance money on her husband's book. Mayhem ensues when the couple begins suspecting each other of cheating. Following their separation, the man becomes a famous writer. Eventually he realizes that he has only loved his wife all along. The two reconcile and happiness ensues.
