It?s tough to grasp a second chance at love when you?re holding on to the past.
After his wife died in a car accident, bestselling author Hunter McCaffrey stopped writing?and stopped living. He?s rented a beachfront cottage to try to get his head on straight and start the long climb up from his pit of despair. But instead of pounding out a first draft, he runs the beach, drinks away his pain, and tries to ignore the vibrant woman in the cottage tucked next to his.
Still floundering months after the loss of her adventure-junkie husband, Sylvie Chase hopes some beach relaxation will help her decide what to do with the rest of her life. Instead, she?s wondering what to do about her unexpected attraction to the grumpy guy next door.
As Sylvie drags Hunter back to the land of the living, they agree to a short fling. Just to get past their sorrow. It won?t mean a thing. But when emotions get in the way, it?s a struggle to leave the past behind and dare to love again.
