Life sails along smoothly on beautiful St. Thomas for Abby Melrose Bellavance, or so she thinks. That is, until her husband, Remy, steals her trust fund and disappears for parts unknown. Now, with five million reasons to write off men for good, she returns to Charleston, broke and groveling at her mother’s feet.
Living again in the opulent mansion, Abby is thrown another curve ball. Her mother dies, leaving Abby with a mansion, but no money to support it.
Turning the home into a boardinghouse will bring in cash, but now two of the hottest men in Charleston are Abby’s tenants. They’re similar in one way—they are men, and she should keep her distance.
As the southern summer blazes on, fate deals Abby one final blow. She wonders now if she’ll ever have a second chance at love.
