When he needed a change of pace to finish his latest book, what better place was there than the small-town heart of St. Helena, CA, Jordan’s home town?

When it’s time for him to go back to New York and leave Jordan behind, will he be able to walk away and go back to his single, isolated lifestyle? Or will they both decide that what they feel for each other is worth taking another chance?
