E.J. Haney is running from a promiscuous past. Involved with the wrong guy, when she makes the decision to make a new life for herself, she goes to the extreme. Hiding behind the facade of a prim and proper small town schoolmarm image, she vows never to love again.
Jacob Ransing is hot, sexy, and divorced. He's also the new guy in town, moving to E.J.'s town as the new principal. Despite all her reservations, E.J. can't help but fall for his looks, charm, and personality. But there is one problem: her belief she'll never be good enough for the sexy man with the reddish-brown hair. Jacob decides a firm hand is the only way to turn her around, and it's working, until the past rears its ugly head. Can the new lovers move on to find the love that was meant to be, or will the past come between them?
