Andrea Mason is a concert pianist with a strong passion for music who is still in mourning, even though her husband-and first love-died six years ago. But when Dan, the single father of one of her piano students, enters her life, Andrea finally feels herself coming alive again.
When the relationship between Dan and Andrea fizzles out, he decides to start a new life in Paris-but not before he introduces her to his half-brother Stephen, a gray-eyed writer who bears a striking resemblance to Dan. Stephen, a recent widower himself, is lonely; when he meets Andrea, he suddenly realizes his life is emptier than he ever thought. While Stephen works on his new book, Andrea attempts to fight her strong attraction to him, but with little success-she immediately accepts when he asks her out on a date. Stephen is fighting his own battles, though. Unable to separate himself emotionally from the story he feels compelled to write, he knows he has no choice but to face the demons from his previous life.
In this contemporary romance, two strangers find their way into each other's hearts but will remain there only if they reconcile their own pasts first.
