Determined to tame the beast that claimed his parents when he was young, Jackson Davidson worked hard, climbing the ranks within the fire department to attain the role of captain before the age of thirty. Gruff and cynical, he takes no nonsense from anyone. He’s sworn off all relationships because there is no way he’s going to be responsible for someone else enduring the same heartache he did. Besides, his sister and niece are enough family for him.
Or they had been, until a blonde schoolteacher crashes into his life and makes him confront the doubts he’s clung to for so long.
Moving to Serenity Bay with her son was the biggest step out of her comfort zone for widowed teacher Madeleine Cleary. That, and volunteering to be the photographer for Serenity Bay Elementary’s fundraising calendar.

But she swore off men until her son, Henry, was older. She doesn’t need the complexity of a relationship in her life when she’s just trying to get by.
But just one look from the handsome firefighter is all it takes to ignite something deep within, and soon they are both battling to overcome fears that could keep them apart.
