Jen Smith’s been alone since her Master died five years earlier. Now, she’s quit her job and come to Libertine Island to witness a marriage. She meets Dr. Caleb McKenna, who took a job on the island to get away from the big bad city after getting shot near the clinic where he volunteered, and the breakup of his long-term relationship. They are two lonely people who decide to have a fling, not expecting to fall for each other.
They are still trying to figure things out when Reynaldo Montoya arrives to bring Caleb home after tracking down the man responsible for the shooting.
Even though they were apart, he’s not to happy to find Caleb in Jen’s arms and decides to extract revenge, but when he sees how much they need each other, he realizes that maybe he’s the one who should step aside unless the three of them can figure out how to make it work.
