When her husband leaves her for a younger woman, transplant surgeon Harlow James finds herself without family and friends… and barely a career. So she trades the bright lights of Manhattan for the open road and ends up at the Pearl, a sustainable home outside of Taos, New Mexico where she hopes to find out where she went wrong… or simply end it all.
But when the home’s owner arrives sooner than expected, Harlow finds herself with the perfect distraction. For master carpenter Dax Drexel is everything she never thought she’d want in a man—he’s gorgeous, cocky, and way too young. Soon, she’ll learn that everything she thought she wanted—her high-profile marriage and career, and even that coveted house in the Hamptons—weren’t exactly what she needed.
But in a world where appearances can be everything, can falling for a man 13 years her junior be the best thing for Harlow? Or is it another big mistake in a life that’s already broken?
