Burnt by love in the past, Zara is afraid to get too close to the fire again…
Zara Munro’s life has been completely torn to shreds when she returns to Esperance, North Carolina, after inheriting the rundown house that holds her only happy childhood memories. The house is just as worn down as Zara feels.
Enter Matt Cooper, the hot handyman who agrees to bring the house back to its former glory. And proves completely irresistible.
Although she can’t keep her hands off him, Zara knows she can’t offer Matt more than a casual fling. She’s nursing wounds too deep to open again and besides, she’s only in town until the house is sold.
As the days draw on, Zara finds herself falling for Matt. The thought of leaving him fills her with dread, but she’s terrified of history repeating.
Can Zara overcome her past and build a future with Matt from the rubble?
