Eve Carlisle has a simple plan--fly to Colorado for Christmas, sell her cabin, and return to her superficial life in Newport.
Meeting Jake is not on the agenda, but Eve cannot deny the attraction between them. Jake reawakens Eve’s heart, which has been locked away since the discovery of her ex-husband’s betrayal.
Convinced the relationship with Jake is nothing more than a fling, Eve refuses to trust Jake or her feelings for him. After all, she has a life in Newport, with society friends and a lucrative career as a family court judge. Everything is ordered. Nothing is spontaneous or chaotic. Nothing will take her by surprise again.
The demons of her failed marriage threaten to end the relationship with Jake just as it’s beginning. Eve refuses to believe the affair can last and returns to Newport. But once the hollowness of her existence is exposed, she must confront her fears before she loses Jake forever.
