Gemma…meets a gardener in shining armor.
I’m fine, at least that’s what I tell everyone. A series of heartbreaks leads me to move across the country, hide away in my pajamas, until a sexy gardener at the San Francisco botanical gardens gets me off my ass. Hell, he saves me when I step in dog shit. He’s close to perfect.
But the past has a way of catching up to me. A promise I made my husband before he died keeps me bound, keeps any chance at love a distant dream. The more time I spend with Jack, the guiltier I feel for breaking my promise. Everyone’s got their hang-ups, right?
Jack…can’t stay away from Gemma.
Life is good. I’ve got a successful landscaping business and I’m an active member of my community. I know better than most that our tragedies shape who we are. Gemma comes from the world I turned away from, but I can’t leave this undeniable thing I’ve got for her alone. I shouldn’t want her, and yet I do.
Being with Gemma makes me feel like a new man, like I’ve been hiding my true self without even knowing it. But something from her past keeps us from moving forward. Someone. Can a simple man compete with a ghost?
