Griff Coleman used to be the happiest man in the world, until a doped-up kid killed his wife and unborn child in a bank robbery. Now, he does his job during the day and spends the rest of the time alone.
Emma Keaton, a five-foot-three package of energy, comes barreling into his life. They're thrown together when Griff is put in charge of building a restaurant next to the new bed-and-breakfast his construction company is currently remodeling. Emma oozes sex appeal, an appeal Griff finds irresistible.
Emma has never been interested in anything long-term with a man. Her feelings change as she and Griff spend time together. Griff must let go of the past and accept her as part of his future. Only then will he heal and love her as much as she loves him.
