Leigh Brackon is back home to look after her “ailing” mother. But she suspects maternal meddling when she finds her old flame John McElroy knee-deep in landscaping in her mom's backyard. Leigh and John's summer affair five years ago ended badly, and they're both leery of relationships after their own failed marriages. But John has always been drawn to Leigh, even though the handyman doubts he's good enough for the brilliant scientist and her twin boys. And Leigh has a secret that could change everything. But have they changed enough to have a real chance this time around?
With a little help from the neighborhood matchmakers, they might see that it isn't too late to find a way forward together.
Going back to where I grew up solved nothing. Coming back home brought no peace. And now—as I look over Anton's last piece of property—I still have no peace.
My godfather's death brought a woman into my life. But a stupid argument ripped her away. I can't stop thinking about her. Wondering about her. Dreaming about her. All I know is I have to see her. I have to feel her body pressed against me again.
Secrets are diseases, and my life is full of them.
But she isn't innocent either. And encounters in my hometown after a brawl in a bar make me wonder if my money is all she's after. Will she forgive the things I said? Can she look past the rumors and see the man I am now? Or are my assumptions of her true?
One thing's for certain. One big, bold truth that keeps me up at night: I think I've fallen for the woman with the thick red hair and the eyes that sparkle with delight.

Working over the holidays on a messy bank takeover in the middle of nowhere is bad enough for federal agent Elise Watson, but then she's partnered with the traitorous Noah James. His highly irritating presence only reminds her of the day he stole her promotion out from under her…and of the drunken, ill-fated night before when she'd all but thrown herself at him. Now she's determined to get the job done and get out, even if it means pulling all-nighters with the one man who stokes her temper—and melts her insides—like no other…
