Nearly two years after her husband’s death, Noelle Goldsmith is convinced that at age 52 she’ll never love a man again. Her days are full running the Bay of Islands bridal shop with her three daughters. Then her old flame, Cameron Taylor, walks into her life and turns everything upside down.
Cam is stunned to find the first woman he ever loved—and lost—on the other side of the world. He’s only in Auckland for one night, but he can’t bear to say goodbye to Noelle when he’s only just found her again. Jokingly, he asks if he can hire her as his wife for his business trip to Wellington. To his shock and delight, Noelle says yes.
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.
