Abigail loves living in the small sleepy southern town of Alcoa. A qualified home-nurse, Abbey is an integral member of the tight-knit community. Although painfully shy, nothing is more rewarding for her than contributing to society by actively engaging and participating in the lives of the elderly townsfolk.
Raised by his grandfather, orphaned Lucas joined the army as soon as he turned 18 to escape the tedious slow-pace life Alcoa offered. Free from small-town gossip and geographical constrictions, the armed forces allowed him to travel the world, participating in the action as an army medic.
An injury incurred in action results in Lucas returning home to recover, only to find Abigail in his house as carer for his grandfather. Abbey remembers him as an immature bully who made her school days hellish, whereas Lucas' barely has a recollection of the prim, proper, prudish wall-flower.
Haunted by the past, sparks fly when the two are forced together to assist Lucas' grandfather. Can the two reconcile their rocky past or will Abigail discover the local 'bad-boy' can never change his ways?
