Emily Delaney, a world-traveled solo violinist, is stuck at home in Boston with a badly injured hand. Cancelled concerts, an uncertain future as well as her manager’s financial deceit has left her in a mess. In addition, she is obligated to return the beloved Stradivarius that was on-loan to her on the condition it can “be seen and heard.” She is certainly in no mood to handle a bossy surgeon, even if she needs him.
Talented orthopedist Scott Miller can repair Emily’s hand if she follows his rules of recovery, but can make no promises about her professional future. He senses her resistance to him and shrugs. A beautiful woman with big chocolaty brown eyes is not part of his life plan anyway. A prior relationship which ended badly--emotionally and financially--has left its mark on him. Love has no rules, however, especially when the oboe-playing physician finds himself introducing Emily to his friends in the medical community’s orchestra.
Constant challenges force Emily and Scott to reexamine their options and figure out solutions. As trust grows, their hearts soften. Can they finally untangle the strings of their lives?
