Alexia Craddock is a small-town attorney who moonlights during her lunch break at her grandmother's ice cream parlor. She's delivering flyers for her grandmother's annual specials when she tangles with a pesky Pomeranian and falls at the feet of a handsome stranger whose chivalrous humor eases her embarrassment and kicks her pulse into overdrive.
Wounded captain Jesse Garland has moved to Craddock's Cove to recuperate and discover what life holds after the navy. When he rescues Alexia from a furry, pint-sized disaster, life suddenly seems full of passion and promise. He vows to get closer to her—one crazy sundae special at a time.
