Jack Harcourt Deveraux and Jennifer Rose Horton were living proof Matthew & Miss "As Dr. Love" game showopposites attract. He was the rich, manipulative son [sic -- adopted-son] of a corrupt Congressman [sic -- Senator]. She was the sweet, innocent granddaughter of the much-loved Horton clan. They met when Jennifer was a cub reporter on The Spectator. Jack was her cold, callous and cynical editor [sic -- and owner].
