She chose loyalty over love. But he wants to give her both...
Emmaline Brown has spent decades hoping her ex would become soft in the middle (and hopefully bald)-anything to take away from his dashing smile. So, when she discovers the years have left him annoyingly intact, she's less than thrilled. To add insult to injury, he's the new manager of her family resort's main competitor: which is right on Emmaline's doorstep.
Miles McClintock lost everything in one honest decision, including his family's honor and the love of this life. Ashamed and outcast, it's been decades since he left Willow Bay in disgrace, but then family duty calls, and an opportunity to run The Kessler Resort puts him exactly where he wants to be: straight in the path of Emmaline Brown.
When Emmaline's matchmaking niece finds a way to force them together, she has no choice but to use her managerial expertise to help her nemesis learn the ropes. But while Miles is keen to settle the past, Emmaline has her eyes firmly on the future-one that doesn't include him.
He feels abandoned. She feels betrayed. Can love's slow burn turn into a fiery passion that razes their fears to the ground?
