PURE ROMANCE

What if a klutzy teacher, spurred by her mentor/friend, sells sex toys at parties for women in order to raise money to shelter abandoned dogs, and discovers that her uptight lawyer boyfriend is her slum landlord, who later rescues the women from a serious attack?

Klutzy Heather Wade encounters another complaint about her dogs. Anxious to raise money for a proper shelter, she enrolls in her friend Karen Parker’s business of sex toy parties.

At her father Martin’s office, she meets lawyer Rothman Spencer and they date. Rothman’s friend, agent Lawrence Green, secretly invests Rothman’s money in low-income housing.

After the mayor’s sudden death, Lawrence and Martin coax Rothman to run for office.

Heather juggles two events at the same time and place: a recruitment evening for the sex toy business; and the mayoral candidate debate for Rothman. Rothman’s suitcase of election buttons gets switched with Heather’s suitcase, and Rothman dumps her.

Heather receives an eviction notice, seeks Rothman’s legal advice, and they reconcile. When Heather discovers that Rothman is the landlord behind her eviction, she dumps him. Rothman, ashamed by the other deals by Lawrence, withdraws his mayoral candidacy.

Rothman saves Heather and Karen from Karen’s knife-wielding ex-husband. Rothman’s heroics result in an outcry for him to run as mayor. He agrees, and wins the election.

Heather petitions city council and wins the rights to build an animal shelter. Heather, successful at her business, buys a house. Rothman recovers a dog and they reunite.
