Tess York, who is a confirmed bachelorette and career woman, can't believe her eyes when she finds Damien Sauer standing in front of her. He is a successful real- estate mogul and was the man Tess once loved. She left him six years ago-how could she imagine that she'd see him again? While Tess loses her peace of mind, Damien offers her a job renovating a cottage. It's the same place they had planned to live in together one day. The offer leaves Tess speechless, and when she sees the flame burning in Damien's eyes, she realizes that he's taking revenge on her.
