Skylar Shay is a single mother and school counselor who believes a good mom would not pick a man over their child. She has held true to her resolve, abstaining from even a single date in the four years since her divorce. When her sister Lexie buys a vacation home in the Bahamas, Skylar is invited to leave her responsibilities behind. The island’s exotic surroundings and a sexy Texan named Mack, seduce Skylar into temporarily abandoning her personal covenant for one night.
Skylar is determined to spend the rest of her vacation painting seascapes, but Mack thwarts her best efforts. He is a charming combination of sweet and sexy she finds irresistible. Even more troubling, he is a man looking for more than a vacation fling and refuses to be left behind on the island of Eleuthera.
Good mothers don’t pick men over their children but when Skylar is forced to choose between a man who loves her and a daughter who will one day leave, the decision is not as easy as she expects.
