Widower Mark Cage is rusty at relationships. Owner of an award-winning micro-brewery, and supplier to St. Augustine’s premiere resort, Essence, his only interest is building his business and raising his teenage daughter. Until he runs into a sweet kindergarten teacher vacationing at the resort. Combined with an inexplicable encounter with a mystical tree, Mark is convinced the woman is his destined match.
His only hope of persuading his skittish lady to go out with him is working with the spa’s onsite relationship coach and blogger, Athena Sullivan. Athena is the opposite of everything Mark wants in a woman. Feisty and independent, sparks fly from their first meeting as Athena helps him navigate the dating scene.
After a series of too-perfect, and mind-boggling boring dates, Mark realizes that the woman of his dreams may not be the sweet schoolteacher after all, but the feisty woman who challenges him at every turn.
If he can only open himself up to loving again, he might just find his true soul mate.
