Dani Sullivan has come to Lake Bliss to write her latest cookbook...and to see if the baby she gave up for adoption eight years ago is happy. When she's done with her reconnaissance, she plans to return to Detroit without any doubts about past decisions. But when she sees her little boy--indeed happy despite living with his single dad--she finds she can't keep her promise to stay away...from her son or from his flirtatious father, who has no idea of her true identity.
Recently divorced sheriff Matt Reagan is ready for a new relationship, but he doesn't want short-term--his son needs permanence, and so does Matt's heart. Unfortunately, it's the smart-mouthed and sinfully sexy Ms. Sullivan who catches his eye. But when Matt learns Dani's secrets, will he still want her to stay? Or will her chance for love last just for the summer?
