Oncologist Brannigan Ryan is used to people falling for him. With his black-Irish good looks and easy bedside manner, he's a favorite among patients. Surrounded by death on a daily basis, however, Bran has learned to harden his heart quite effectively. That is until he starts treating Ian Fitzgerald.
Ian's warm smile and determination easily punch holes in Bran's barriers. Taking a step back to rebuild the walls around his heart, Bran takes off to his weekend house on the coast. He can't surrender to Ian, and he can't ever get involved with a patient. When a treasure and a message in a bottle wash ashore on his beach, he's forced to re-examine his determination and wonder if he can't open himself to love after all.
Warning: Contains a sexy doctor who will steal your heart with his steamy bedside manner.
