Firefighter Delaney Sutton needs a good rest. Her job is no longer enjoyable. Nightmares of a deadly explosion that killed a close co-worker and put her on sick leave for six months are waking her up at night. Her chief thinks she needs to take time off to decide if firefighting is what she wants to do for the rest of her life. To top it all off, her sisters are complaining that she does not spend enough time with her family.
When Delaney makes up her mind to travel to Hatteras Island to stay at her family's beach house, she expects a quiet, relaxing break from her problems. To her dismay, she discovers that her three older sisters have a plan to find her a husband, "the perfect man" who will ultimately make her life happy and complete.
Gareth Collins is helping with his family for the summer. When he goes to the Sutton beach house to repair a washer, he has no idea that the women there are planning his future, complete with a wife and children. He finds the youngest Sutton interesting and wants to get to know her better, but he is often mystified by the close relationship she has with her sisters.
Will Delaney get the rest she needs? Will Delaney and Gareth find time to spend together without the interference of her sisters? Will their attraction to each other influence Delaney's decision to leave the career she has wanted all her life?
