Sent to live with a group of nuns after her mother's accusations of immoral behavior toward her brother and stepfather, Candice Britt finally felt as though she belonged to a family. Putting the past behind her, she blooms and begins to set goals for her new life.
Thomas Lividini, the local landscape storeowner meets and falls head over heels for Candice even though she's made a different choice for her life. He knows he must stay away from her, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Thomas attempts to move on with his life, although he's unhappy.
When Thomas arrives to watch Candice unveil her birthday gift, things heat up and it's obvious to the sisters who sense something more than friendship between Candice and Thomas. The sisters make a plan to test Candice's devotion. After her birthday dinner, Thomas leaves abruptly. He can't stand being so close to the woman he loves. Her warmth and scent drive him insane and he doesn't think he has the right to ask her to make a choice when she'd just met him.
After many months of fighting lustful desires she shouldn't have in the first place, Candice makes her move.
Will she chose to move on with Thomas or without him?
