The last thing Jace Randall wants is to be smitten with a woman. His sister, Eden, said it would happen when he moved to Tucker Mills to help his uncle run the sawmill. Now he wants to prove her wrong. That is, until he runs into Maddie Shepard. Not even winning a battle with the sister who raised him can help him keep his heart in check. What he doesn't reckon on is Eden's need to control his life - or the lengths to which she will go to separate him from Maddie.
