Doctor Ryan Novak wants nothing to do with women whose only wish is to be a doctor's wife. Luckily, working in his pediatric clinic in rural Mexico puts romance last on his mind.
Nurse Grace Sinclair arrives at La Clínica Pediátrica with a broken heart and a vow never to fall in love again. The temporary nursing assignment is exactly what she needs to escape her painful memories and to rejuvenate her spirit.
After a rocky introduction, Ryan considers Grace too beautiful to have altruistic motives for joining the clinic, and Grace believes he is like the doctors back home, demanding and self-centered. However, they soon realize they are equally committed to helping the community, and their close working relationship makes it impossible to ignore their attraction to one another.
When Ryan offers Grace a permanent assignment, her pain and fear stand in the way, and he wonders if he'll ever be able to convince Grace to risk her heart again.
