City lover Amanda MacGee is determined to sell the lakeside guest house she inherited from her estranged father. But her plans go awry when self-proclaimed artist, poet, and lover extraordinaire Richard O'Brien blithely moves in--and refuses to leave! He's outrageous! Annoying! l le uses crazy tricks to charm her, any stratagem to win her--even recruiting a beer-drinking dog and a conniving cat!
What's Amanda to do? Berate Richard for searing off prospective buyers... for whispering poetic nonsense that arouses languid warmth? Or succumb to the peace of lazy intimacy, the pleasure of passion...and the possibility of a joyous new life?
