But all of that is swept away in a heartbeat when her sister Grace and brother-in-law Danny are killed in a car accident, leaving three traumatized young children in Annie's care.
Finding herself suddenly forced into parenting after thirty-eight contentedly child-free years is enough of a challenge on its own, before she learns custody of the children is to be shared between herself and Danny's half-brother Marcus - a man she's never even met.
Stubborn, fiery, and infuriatingly able to read her every thought, Marcus sweeps into their lives and turns everything upside-down. But opening herself up to the growing attraction that neither of them can deny threatens the carefully-built stability of Annie's life by forcing her to reckon with the ghosts that have haunted her for the past ten years.
Old secrets and new desires come to light as two complicated, broken people make their way through the wilderness of guilt, grief, passion and love to build a new kind of family in the wreckage of the one they thought they'd lost forever.
