Blythe Alexander’s life is suddenly turned upside down when she discovers that her fiancé is cheating on her. Blythe decides to make a fresh start, leaving her career behind and returning to her hometown of Fredericksburg, South Carolina. The historic Victorian mansion willed to her by her beloved, late grandmother will be a lovely bed and breakfast with a little hard work on her part. As a welcome home, the speeding ticket she receives her first night in town is written by none other than Sheriff Alec Harmon, the one man whom she has never forgotten, the one man from whom she must guard her heart, the same heart he broke a decade ago. And that’s not all she must guard. It seems that her new home has secrets, secrets that someone else knows all about. And Blythe may have to place her own safety in Alec’s hands. Alec loved Blythe once and built his future around his hope of marrying her until the two were separated by war. Now he’s married or at least seems to be and wants Blythe back, in his bed that is. Will this be their second chance at love?
