Andres Nunez is shocked to learn that he has a two-year-old child. Parenthood is not part of his plan as he pursues the challenging career of an investigative journalist in various unsettled regions around the world, but he is curious about his daughter and the young nurse and mother his ex-wife appointed as the child's guardian. Eve Bennett has a big problem. The father of her adopted daughter is not dead, as she had believed for some time. Not only is Andres Nunez alive, but he is also determined to interrupt her quiet, relaxing summer vacation on Hatteras Island in North Carolina. Despite her reservations, she allows him to spend time participating in family activities with her daughter and son. When Andres rents the house next door to hers, Eve doesn't know what she's going to do because she's becoming far too comfortable with the presence of this charming, reckless man in her life. While Andres wrestles with whether or not he can be more than just an absentee father, Eve is forced to adjust to the idea of having her daughter's handsome father as a permanent member of her family. Both of them must deal with the undeniable attraction that is growing between them and complicating everything.
