My life is no fairy tale, but it's grim.


A twisted affair ruined my career and reputation. The loss of my beloved uncle wrecked my heart. All I have left is an old house in a coastal Maine town crawling with secrets.

Then a mysterious, reclusive man offers me a long as I don't ask him any questions or go poking my nose where it doesn't belong.

Strange? Yes. Tempting? Unbearably.

Though Flynn ignites me with hot desire, getting involved with the local eccentric is the worst thing I can do. Yet this man and his secrets are impossible to resist.

Who is he? Why is he such a loner? What's his story?

One day soon, I'm going to find out.
