When the Dempsey patriarch suffers a heart attack, Lucas
Dempsey steps up to keep the doors of the family restaurant
open. The proverbial prodigal son returns home to Anchor
Islandâ€”putting family first and his quest to make partner at
his high-powered law firm on hold. Sporting a bruised ego
after losing his fiancĂ©e to his older brother, Lucas would
rather walk on glass than spend six weeks within spitting
distance of the happy couple. But family duty calls. And
that duty includes working side-by-side with a tantalizing
spitfire intent on driving him mad.
Tough-as-nails boat mechanic Sid Navarro is happy to
trade her tools for an apron to help the Dempseys in their
time of need. That is, until she realizes sheâ€™ll be working
alongside Lucas, the man sheâ€™s loved from afar since she
first laid eyes on him in high school. Lucas could charm the
paint off a schooner, but Sid knows she doesnâ€™t fit his
girl-next-door type. To show her true feelings would mean
certain heartbreak, but the temptation of Lucas in her bed
might be more than she can resist.
After a rocky start punctuated by verbal barbs and
exasperating arguments, things heat up between themâ€”big-time
â€”but their steamy affair turns more than casual in a matter
of weeks. Sidâ€™s life has become the dream sheâ€™s always
wanted, and Lucas has fallen hard for the last woman he ever
expected to love.
But this affair has an end-date, as Lucas must return to
his life and career in the big city, a place where Sid would
never fit in. When the end comes earlier than expected,
walking away turns out to be a challenge neither of them
wants to win.
