Brody Brown has always been responsible for others. After his parents' deaths, he gave up a promising artistic career to care for his younger brother and sister. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, has a nice house, makes a decent living, and he's finally on his own.
Elise Sorenson has come to Seattle with her young daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina--and just as many years in a marriage gone bad--she's looking for neither love nor attention. But she finds both when a handsome, honest man befriends her with no strings attached.
More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need--wild, physical passion without commitment. But it'll take a shadow from Elise's past to make them look beyond what they need--to what they truly desire .
