All former Navy SEAL Mason Lawson craves is solitude. Unfortunately, his new neighbor won't allow him the peace he so desperately needs. Between the traffic and the music, Mason is constantly on edge - not exactly what the doctor ordered for someone recovering from a bullet to the leg. However, when he finally has enough and confronts his neighbor, nothing can prepare him for how hot he'd get for the teacher next door.
Piano teacher Skylar Jernigan loves everything about the town of Jessamine - from the quaint Main Street shops to the people who own them. Unfortunately, once she's chewed up and spit out by her sexy neighbor, Skylar begins to question her decision to move to a new town. Until, that is, she learns he's suffering from a war wound and refuses to have anything to do with his family.
Now, Skylar is determined to help Mason recover - mentally, physically and socially - until he turns the tables and sets out to seduce Skylar right out of her meddling ways. Only seduction turns into something more and soon, Mason can't stop looking for excuses to be with her. But when the Navy wants Mason to reenlist for a dangerous mission, will Skylar be too irresistible for him to leave?
