Widower Coire Allaway has spent the past few years focused on his twelve-year-old daughter, Una. When her interest in art leads them to a local studio, Coire finds himself drawn to the owner, Billie Cantrell. Hypnotized by the sway of her hips and the joy in her voice, his desire is awakened for the first time since his wife’s death.
After wasting years in a loveless relationship, the free-spirited, independent artist isn’t looking for a man. Yet even Billie can’t help but be enchanted by the husky brogue of the Scotsman, his whiskey brown eyes, and the dedication to his daughter.
As the passion between them rages to a fevered pitch, they’re forced to make a decision. She isn’t willing to settle for less than love. Coire isn’t sure he can risk falling in love again.
