Trinity Ewing is new in Madison and her one goal is to put her old life behind her. She's made mistakes. A lot of them. She's done everything short of selling herself to stay alive and provide for her son. Now she's just looking for a place where they can put down roots and call it home. The old ramshackle house on the banks of the Ohio River may need a lot of work, but it seems to be the perfect place for Trinity and her son. Noah Benningfield has a head full of demons and a past he'd like to forget. He loves working with his hands, so when the town's newcomer needs some work done, he's happy to oblige. However, when he meets Trinity Ewing he feels like he's been struck by lightening - twice. And that may not be a good thing...because he wants to move. However, when her home reveals terrible secrets, causes old wounds and mysteries to resurface, and an old flame comes blazing back into town, both Trinity and Noah are thrown together into a situation ripe with danger and desire that neither may survive.
