Christi is a romance writer struggling over a love scene in her latest novel. Since her painful divorce she’s been unable to summon the passion from within to give her stories their needed sensual spark. Afraid to trust the emotions that led her astray, she finds a bit of solace at the little beach cottage on Long Island’s south shore that was left to her in the divorce settlement, and is understandably wary when her ex-husband’s brother shows up out of the blue to claim the cottage. But is it really the cottage he wants, or something else, something she is even more reluctant to part with?
Attracted to the lovely romance writer, Wade doesn’t trust his instincts and judgments after returning from war-torn Iraq where his work as a private security contractor led to a terrible betrayal. He doesn’t want the beach house, but he does want Christi. The only problem is convincing Christi of his sincerity and himself that his feeling can be trusted.
Can these two lonely and scarred people learn to trust again? And when the road to trust leads to love, can all the tomorrows be far behind?
