Marcus Beckett returned to Sanctuary Island hoping for a new start. He probably shouldn't have dumped Sanctuary Island's sweetheart, Quinn Harper. The island residents aren't taking it well... but they don't understand how close Marcus came to losing his heart to Quinn: a girl ten years too young-and worlds too sweet-for a bitter cynic like him. Quinn has been in love with Marcus since she watched him drive away from Sanctuary Island in a haze of grief and sexy black leather years ago. Now she has a proposition for him: Quinn will convince her friends to lay off their boycott of Marcus's bar... if Marcus agrees to pretend to be her boyfriend to convince her parents that she's finally grown up and ready to settle down. But will their arrangement lead to a true love to last a lifetime?
