Widowed firefighter Mason Benfield is happy putting out fires and running a teen center--anything to distract himself from the loss of his wife. A loss he blames on a young doctor's inexperience. So when he discovers his landlords' new houseguest is just out of med school and working at the new health clinic, Mason bristles. Since Lexie Campbell is also donating her time to his teen center, he can't escape the woman...or the attraction he feels to the pretty doctor. As they work together, they develop a bond neither thought they wanted. But can Mason give her--and himself--a reason to take one more chance on forever?
