"At the urging of her dear friend Kim, Jecca Layton put the ruthless New York City art world on hold to spend the summer pursuing her passion for painting while enjoying Edilean's artistic community. For years, Kim's cousin Dr. Tristan Aldredge - the town's handsome and dedicated doctor - felt a deep connection to Kim's college sister Jecca, though they had met only once before; now, Jecca is swept off her feet by this strong, sensitive man in a summer of sensual delights. But when long shadows announce Jecca's return to "real life" and the big city, the lovers must decide: Can they survive the distance? Or who will sacrifice so they can be together?" -- Cover verso.
