Writer Nick Eliot (Cary Elwes) secures a job at Pique magazine and lodging in a guest house belonging to Cliff and Liv Forrester (Kurtwood Smith and Gwynyth Walsh). The handsome Nick soon makes the acquaintance of the Forrester's 14-year-old daughter, Adrian (Alicia Silverstone) a precocious girl who develops an intense attraction to him. She secretly helps Nick by sneaking into his room and rewriting one of his Pique stories, which subsequently wins a rave review from his editor/boss, Michael (Matthew Walker) at a party thrown by the Forresters. Nick agrees to accompany the lonely girl on a nighttime drive to a romantic spot, where she kisses him.
