Rose Richardson is on the run from her dangerous ex-husband, a crime she didn’t commit—and the embarrassment of being an advice columnist with a disastrous personal life. With a fake identity, and her adorable dog Bella, she escapes to a lake house rental in rural Connecticut—only to discover her refuge is already occupied. Now her plans have been disrupted by the most attractive man she’s ever seen.
A prize-winning novelist mourning the loss of his wife, Leo Drake clearly wants to be alone. But Rose has nowhere else to go—plus, he kind of likes the quirky pooch. Despite his misgivings, his mysterious housemate has secrets that only draw him closer, firing his imagination, even as his heart struggles with the attraction building between them. Perhaps this beautiful, fragile Rose is just the muse he needs.
