At thirty-one, Elise Calvert is no stranger to loss. Left entirely alone after her husband passes, she has no one to turn to when the loneliness creeps in and becomes to much to bear. But it's okay. Alone is good. It's what she's used to. It's safe, secure, and there's no chance of having your heart ripped from your chest when you keep yourself isolated from the rest of the world.
Going through life completely numb, however, is not without it's consequences. When, on a whim, Elise ditches her solitary life in Seattle for a temporary move back to her hometown in Iowa, she begins to wonder if being entirely alone is really what she wants after all. But she has plans, big plans - ones that certainly don't include falling in love with Humphrey Malone. Who just happens to be her landlord. And someone with whom she also happens to share a steamy past.
Love isn't all it's cracked up to be, and Elise has no desire to hand her heart - her freedom - over to anyone ever again. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans ...
