As a romance writer, her dreams of a happily-ever-after died with her husband of twenty-five years in a freak car accident. But that won’t stop her best friend from pushing her towards finding it again. Naval Captain Aiden Maddock is suffering from a loss of his own. When his wife dies of cancer, he settles into life on the high seas, postponing retirement indefinitely. Fleet Week brings him to the City Of Roses for a few days of adventure.
