Synopsis

Sexy female con artist Max Connor has created a perfect scam: she’ll marry eligible bachelors, deny them sex, and then discover them in a compromising position with another, younger woman – leading to hefty annulment settlements. But Max’s sex-starved husbands don’t know that the “other woman” is actually Max’s 22 year-old daughter Page, who’s in on the con. Page wants independence, but when Max finds out the IRS wants back taxes, she convinces Page to come with her to Palm Beach for one last job.  All goes according to plan, until Page breaks the most important rule: she falls in love.
