Twenty-something divorcee Niara Morgan has moved back to her small hometown, buying a cottage on the lake where she hopes to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. In fixing the place up, her path crosses that of Brady Trewin, a friend from high school she hires to help. He’s grown up and filled out, but her difficult past keeps her from contemplating anything more than business.
Brady has loved Niara for as long as he can remember, but long ago gave up the dream of ever seeing her again when she moved after graduation. He's saved up and is planning to finally leave his small town for good, just as she steps back into his life. One touch, one feel of her lips might get her out of his system...
Although this near to her after so long, he might never want to let her go.
