Eleven months wasn't long enough to prepare Sophie Lawson for the sight of him...
Sophie became a second mother to her twin brother, Seth, and younger sister, Jenna, after her mother was bedridden and her father bailed on the family. Sophie supported her siblings through their college years, setting aside her own dream of opening a book shop in Piper's Cove, the quaint North Carolina beach town they frequented as children.
It's finally time for Sophie to follow her own dreams. Seth just got a new job, the family house is sold, and Jenna is set to marry her college beau in Piper's Cove. The destination wedding reunites Sophie with best man Aiden Maddox, her high school sweetheart who left her without a backward glance to run an extreme sporting business in Florida. Much to Sophie's surprise, seeing Aiden reignites familiar feelings, which she quickly tries to bury in the tumult of the day. Once the wedding crowd fades, Sophie turns her focus back to establishing her beloved bookstore.
An advancing hurricane leaves Aiden stranded in Piper's Cove, and with the hotels booked to capacity, he asks Sophie to put him up until the storm passes. As the two weather the storm, old feelings rise to the surface. Can Sophie trust Aiden to stick around? Does daredevil Aiden have the courage to risk his heart?
