And an evil threat from the past that jeopardizes it all...
As co-owner and chef of The Spotted Dog, Parker Cunningham has made his Irish pub a culinary success. While his charm and laid-back attitude have made him a fan favorite of the local ladies, he keeps women at arm's length after a disastrous marriage. With one exception.
Kate Peterson works hard to keep the ghosts of her chaotic childhood buried. Everyone describes her as friendly and kind, polite and efficient. A bit boring? Sure, but she's fine with that. Caution and order are the pillars she's built her world around. No risks. Not professionally. Not personally. And definitely, not romantically.
One kiss between the two long-time friends ignites a fire that can't be put out. Then Kate's past comes calling, and threatens her well-organized life and their budding relationship.
Can they survive the ghosts of her past? Or will Parker and Kate be silenced forever?
