New York City self-help editor Olivia Marks faces her toughest assignment yet: parenthood. When her sister dies in a car accident, the career-oriented Olivia suddenly becomes the guardian to her four-week-old niece, Annabelle. She also becomes a challenge for Annabelle’s uncle, Brad Rushford, an old flame whose gorgeous green eyes bring Olivia’s fevered memories rushing back.
As the two circle each other in their small hometown of Mirror Lake, Olivia finds that Brad is as sexy and charming as ever—and now he’s the darling of the town as he expands his successful lakefront restaurant. Is his flirting designed to get serious, or get Olivia to lower her defenses and give up guardianship? What about the turreted, brick Victorian house Brad tours with a realtor and an attractive, no-strings-attached reporter, the same place where he and Olivia shared an unforgettable night years ago—is he looking for a future with Olivia, or planning to start a new life with someone else?
In the first heartwarming Mirror Lake story, steamy trysts and surprising twists lead two people to a future neither one expected.
