Turning to Barry Manilow for inspiration seemed desperate, even to Grace Winston. Nevertheless, a warbled rendition of Ready to Take a Chance Again, chased down with an overabundance of cheap chardonnay, left Grace primed for an extreme life makeover. Now she must choose between a flame that burned her in the past and an engaging man with a past of his own.

After a decade in the military, Jake Magee is finally ready to settle down with the woman he's spent years dreaming about. Unfortunately, past mistakes threaten to derail his plan to show Grace he can be the man she always wanted. To win her heart, he must first find a way to win back her trust.

As the warm sun soaked into her skin and the soft music of Jimmy Buffett filled her ears, Grace nearly drifted off to sleep. In her semi-conscious state, she could barely feel the soft spray of sand gently pelting her ankles. With great effort, she raised one eyelid. No. No. No. Not possible.

Eyeing his confident stance, Grace couldn't help but appreciate the broad muscles that covered his bare chest. Judging from his attire, a well-worn pair of navy shorts, it was clear he had just finished running, probably with her brother. Ah, so this meeting was not by chance, but by design.

Not being a strong swimmer, Grace realized she was short on escape options. She peeled off her sunglasses and motioned for Jake to have a seat. Examining him closely, she saw few physical traces of the young man she'd first met years ago. His once-lithe body was now solid. Her ability to read his face was now impaired by his set features and guarded expressions. She didn't trust the wisdom of her thoughts, so she decided to let him break the ice.

"Thanks for saving a dance for me last night."

Perplexed and perturbed, she eyed him warily. "We never danced last night, you big goofball."

"You know, you're right. Kind of rude of you to blow off an old friend so completely, don't you think?"

She groaned. "Should I remind you that you were with your girlfriend, and somehow I don't think she would have appreciated having to share?"

He lifted his head to meet her gaze head-on. "To be honest, that would have been her problem. If I wanted a few minutes alone with an old friend, so be it."

"In light of our history, it was probably wise that we gave each other a wide berth."

"Afraid we would have ended up in the same horizontal position we did after the last time we danced?" His voice trailed off as he noticed the fire that leapt into her eyes.
