A story about starting fresh, letting go, and risking it all for love…
For Hannah, Mercy Island is a refuge, a new beginning, and a place to settle in the hopes of finding safety in her own skin. This peaceful beachside town is where she intends to rediscover all those pieces of herself her abusive ex thieved away.
For Bear, Mercy Island is a backwater, a place he can't wait to escape. Away, in the city, he'll chase his dreams and lose the bad memories haunting him. When Hannah's home is damaged in an ugly storm, Bear offers his handyman services to repair it–a last job and a pretty girl to pass the time before he heads out.
Hannah is terrified to lose herself in another relationship, and Bear isn't in it for the long haul. However, their simmering attraction refuses to be ignored, and just because love isn't on the line doesn't mean a fling isn't on the table. A no–strings–attached arrangement to curb the tension. No ties. No emotions. No pain.
But love has a way of coming in the windows, even when you've slammed the door, if only Hannah and Bear can stop looking to the past and find hope in their future.
