Paul Martinez has been run ragged by the demands of managing the family's landscaping business and his mother's battle with dementia. It's been so long since he had sex... he can't remember the last time. The arrival of nurse Hope Russell brings some badly needed help to Paul and his brother, Alex, in managing their mother's illness, but Hope's presence has sparked a whole new problem for Paul-lusting after one of his employees, something his late father would never condone. Hope and her young son, Ethan, badly need this second chance on Gansett Island, and she's determined to make her new job work for both of them. Kissing her boss, however, was not part of the plan. The more time she spends with Paul the more she admires the way he cares for his mother and the attention he pays to her son. But when Paul finds out about her shameful past, will he still want her and Ethan in his life?
