The title, Portland Oregon’s Most Eligible Bachelor, feels like a bad joke to sad and lonely computer geek, Michael McMartin. Yes, he’s a genius; and yes, he’s a multi-millionaire with women standing in line to date him, but the truth is, Michael has about as much sex appeal as a wart. It’s all about the money.When best friend Nathan challenges Michael to win a girl without his money, Michael chooses the easiest mark he can find, a scar-faced backwoods waitress named Cindy who is so pathetic she’s been nick-named, ‘Doggie Girl’. Against his will, snobbish Michael is drawn to this socially unacceptable, but smart, high school drop-out and the two wounded misfits connect ‘nerd heart’ to ‘nerd heart’. And then he tells her the lie. Michael is not the only one hiding something; Cindy has a secret of her own and her secret is deadly. Once again, Michael will find himself faced with a challenge. To lose this challenge will cost him not only his life, but an innocent family will be murdered as well. His chances of winning hover somewhere between slim and none.
