On the rocky coastline of a Maine fishing village, two people find new hope in each other.
Jess Pelletier’s life has spun out of control. Her ex-fiancé has broken the bank—or at least her account—and she’s just been laid off. So she takes a bold step. The Maine fishing village of Applecross Cove looks like the perfect refuge for her to retreat and reset her life.
When Mark Breton’s realtor aunt sends him to Jess with the lease and the key to Jess’s house, the key to her heart isn’t part of the deal. But the guy’s pretty hard to ignore. With a heart that’s gone rogue, Jess desperately clings to her plan to build a new life and a business.
Fate hasn’t given Mark very much reason to trust, but he’s come to terms with the accident that derailed his dreams years ago. When feelings for Jess bring his heart back to life, the past comes along with it and looms between them. Now they’ll both have to confront it or miss out on their one chance at love.
