After a devastating personal loss, transplant surgeon Harlow James finds herself alone at forty and about to lose everything she worked for in a contentious divorce. So she leaves it all behind and finds herself at the Pearl, a sustainable home outside Taos, New Mexico where she hopes to find out where she went wrong or just end it all.
But when master carpenter Dax Drexel arrives at the Pearl earlier than expected, Harlow finds herself with the perfect distraction, for Dax and everything that comes with him is like the breath of fresh air she never knew she needed in her life. It doesn’t hurt that he’s gorgeous, funny, and so good in bed.
But when the time comes to return to the real world of divorce negotiations and hospital politics, can her fling with a much younger man turn into the real thing?
