When novelist Sabrina Covell wakes up to a beautiful woman sipping coffee in her kitchen, she wonders what kind of mess her sister left her with this time. Another short-term love affair, another broken heart, courtesy of ruthless anchorwoman Miranda Covell.
Blythe Jansen isn't any ordinary guest in her Martha's Vineyard home, though. She's an accomplished photographer who's not afraid to get to the heart of the matter with her subjects. Not only that, but Miranda seems to think Sabrina needs a fake relationship to save her image.
Sabrina is tired of dealing with the fallout of her sister's romantic conquests, not to mention living in her overbearing shadow. Yet, she can't deny her attraction to Blythe. Maybe it's the lonely summer nights or the silence broken only by the crashing of the waves, but Sabrina decides to let Blythe stay for the season.
What starts out as a game quickly turns into something more when Blythe reveals what she wants: Sabrina's heart. Too bad Sabrina has been burned twice before by her sister's ex-girlfriends and doesn't expect this to be any different.
