Dr. Sebastian Stuart wants nothing more than to break out from under his father's thumb. Born after a frat-party fling, his mother abandoned him and his father left him to be raised by his grandparents. Now, Sebastian is giving up a lucrative career as a Chicago surgeon to practice in the small town of Grayson Falls, New Hampshire with his sister.
After losing her job at the library, Megan Miller took a job as Jackie and Danny McKenzie's new nanny to make ends meet. When the new doctor comes to town, Megan does everything she can to avoid him. He looks at her with knowing eyes, as if he can look deep inside her and see the illness she tries to hide.
Sebastian is enchanted by the conservative and evasive Megan. She has an aversion to doctors he doesn't understand, yet works for his sister. He's drawn to her and can't stay away. Together, they learn to break free of the limits set upon them and open themselves up to love.
