Jason Sinclair grew up with an eccentric father and an unloving emotionally damaged mother. He bolted at seventeen and hasn't been home much in four years. When he discovers his mother is dying of cancer, he grudgingly returns home to say goodbye. He plans on doing his duty, and then selling the property so he can go back to his old life.
Adam Trent is the new sexy grounds keeper. Jason has an immediate attraction to the mysterious gardener, but Jason is horrible at relationships. However, Adam is persistent and impossible to ignore, so Jason gives in to his desires.
Most people in town assume Jason will sell the property the minute his mother dies, and run back to LA. Frankly, that was his plan until he became involved with Adam. But when his connection with Adam grows, he actually consider staying in Laramae Bay to explore his budding relationship with Adam.
When bizarre things start happening, it soon becomes obvious someone wants Jason's land, and they don't care what they have to do to get it.
