Kat's first love ended badly, but since then she's carved out a career as a headmistress and a life for her and her daughter. Her calm, man-free existence is thrown into turmoil when she commissions Jake, a sexy carpenter, to build a climbing frame for her school.
Jake thinks of his life in two parts. Life before the incident, and life after. Three years into life after and he's living in another village, doing a different job and maybe, just maybe, he's learning to love again.
But then Jake's past crashes into the present with dangerous consequences. With Kat's life in danger he must confront his demons or let history repeat itself, taking away all he holds dear--including Kat.
