Workaholic real estate agent Carol Brock can't seem to find a good man. Her first husband cheated with a law clerk less than half his age. Then she found herself in a string of bad relationships with unscrupulous men, including a con man and art thief, who shredded her professional reputation and strained her relationship with her college-age children. Carol has sworn off men and is determined to reclaim her life and career on her terms. But, when Boston's most eligible bachelor, restoration specialist Devin Elliott, puts in an offer on a charming Victorian, Carol admits she's attracted. Devin's offer unwittingly unleashes a psychopathic rage in an ex-girlfriend that spills into Carol's life. As she and Devin try to stay one step ahead of violence, Carol must decide whether she's ready to risk her heart again.
