The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their
return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house
that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu
brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts
with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago.
Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce
legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important
documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the
culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers,
Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding
Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself
developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.
As a
decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks
of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man
whose intentions and affections are less than certain.
