When Molly accepts her father's gift of a log cabin on a beautiful island, she knows there will probably be strings attached.

Patrick is the man of her dreams, but just when she begins to dream of future with him, her father's abandoned problems come calling on her door and she realizes that she's the last woman a man like Patrick can afford to love.
