A man looking to outrun the ghosts of his past and an independent woman used to being left behind…
Beautiful bar owner Jaime Lynn Walker has lived her life under the impression that everyone leaves… It's all she's ever known. After opening a pub in St. Fleur, she roots herself into the town and its community, making her question if her mantra was all wrong.
When a handsome stranger walks into the bar looking for a job, she knows hiring him is a bad idea, but it doesn't stop her. Giving in to their powerful attraction, she accepts his invitation to explore the passion brewing between them—and is reminded that not everyone is meant for happily ever after.
Haunted by the memories in his hometown, and everything he was forced to leave behind, Jesse Slade leaves New Orleans in search of peace. What he finds instead is the light to his dark, the calm to his storm. Jaime Lynn chases the past away and turns his nightmares back into hopes and dreams.
Happiness nearly slips through his fingers after Jaime Lynn suddenly pulls away and leaves Jesse wondering what he did wrong. Appearances can be deceiving, and just when the truth comes to light and the stars finally align for them, Jesse is given a chance to reclaim a part of his life he thought was lost forever.
Will their second chance at love be able to weather their pasts?
