Jane Spring has discovered that twenty-first-century relationships are built on a myth. She's organized, attractive, strong-minded and self-sufficient - yet she's single. She's smart, ambitious and sexually confident - yet somehow, while all her friends plan their weddings, no-one wants to marry her.

And that's when the revelation hits her: Doris wouldn't be stuck inside alone at a weekend. Doris wouldn't scare men off. Doris always gets her man. Because despite everything men say, they're terrified of women like Jane. What they really want is a cute little blonde with frosted pink lipstick, tight pencil skirts and kitten heels. What they really want is Doris.
And so Jane Spring sets out to reinvent herself. If that's what men want, that's what she'll give them...
