He's wrong for her in every way, right? All architect Tess has ever wanted is to open her own design firm. So she's thrilled when she wins a coveted waterfront project. She's less thrilled to be working with rebellious contractor John Jameson Quinn! Tess doesn't go for brooding bad boys - especially one who isn't shy about going after what he wants. And he wants Tess. Never mind that he's got a scandalous past to overcome and a daughter to raise. Quinn follows his own drumbeat. Only now Tess is starting to hear it too... Can they build a love to last?
