Royal travels to Southwest Florida to investigate some property, never expecting to find his beautiful ex-wife happily settled in this small town. Back in the day, Royal was a hotshot contractor with everything money could buy--except Joette. His spoiled brat behavior destroyed their marriage. Is fate giving him another chance? Despite her best efforts, Joette can't seem to avoid Royal. Reluctantly, she begins to see another side to his personality. Maybe he's changed--but is it worth the risk to rekindle their romance and find out?
