In a single, impulsive act, Susannah Faulconer, the daughter of one of the country's most powerful industrialists, follows her heart and finds herself severed from her family and everything familiar. Now she's the only woman in a world of men...and no etiquette book can teach her how to survive. There's Sam, the charismatic visionary; Yank, the fascinating inventor; and Mitch, the troubled corporate genius. Together, they will force Susannah into the biggest challenge of her life and a bold experiment that will change them all forever. Her name is Susannah, but three men she brings together in 1970s California call her Hot Shot. She's the spark to a daring venture they start in a garage and build into an empire. For Sam, a rebel, the business is just the thrill he seeks; for Yank, an eccentric inventor, it's his vision fulfilled; and for Mitch, a starched marketing genius, it's a risk he has to take. But dreams can have a cruel price. For Susannah, daughter of a bigwig in a competing company, success means losing her family. The trade-off is unimagined courage and a passion that will enrich her dramatically. Is it worth it?
