Maeve Arden had promised to love forever, but the marriage failed. Now, five years later, Maeve has finally found peace -- peace she's promised herself to keep. The last thing she wants is a new man in her life. Her joy comes from her work -- designing landscape gardens.
Will Beaumont hires Maeve to design his garden. He, too, isn't looking to have anyone else in his life -- no matter how much she attracts him. He's just agreed to a platonic marriage with another woman -- and it's a promise HE intends to keep.
But circumstances conspire to remind Will of a second promise he's made.
