Three years after her husband’s death, Noelle Goldsmith is convinced that at age 55 she’ll never marry again. Her days are full running the Bay of Islands bridal shop with her three daughters. Then Cal Taylor walks into her life and turns everything upside down.
Cal is stunned to find the first woman he ever loved—and lost—on the other side of the world. About to close the most important business deal of his career, he feels that having a wife on his arm will make him seem more authentic, so he asks Noelle to pretend to be his new bride for the weekend.
It’s just an act and a chance to catch up on old times before he leaves again for the UK. But the passion that was between them has only been dormant, not extinct, and when it flares up again, it’s going to make parting a second time the hardest thing they’ve ever had to do.
