From the Back Cover
Palmira Island is Jessica's home. The beauty of Florida's sand and surf are a perfect backdrop for her family-run bed-and-breakfast, a business she's sworn to keep up after the death of her mother. And perhaps the sun is rising after the dark night of the past year. Certainly it's getting hotter. She spots a man on the beach and he's tatted, muscular...and the boy who took her virginity so many years before. Why has he returned, and are his scars anything like her own? Secrets abound, but in weather like this everything must be revealed.
