From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.
A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him
Leesa is new to town and she doesn’t know how long she will be in Peaceful Harbor. She’s trying to start over from a scandal that left her questioning everything around her.
Cole is the one most eligible bachelors in town. He’s sick of the dating game and ready to settle down. So when he meet Leesa and feels a connection with the mysterious woman, he thinks he may have found his forever.
The chemistry between these two is combustible! Cole is kind, patient and compassionate. Leesa is sweet yet vulnerable and even though her head is telling her she’s not ready for a relationship – her heart is on fire for the handsome doctor.
