But she was younger then. Now she's not that much older, but at least she's wise enough to jump at the chance to run her father's clinic for a summer in the Sierra Nevadas. Here she treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. She also contends with patients like Stone Wilder, laid-back and well-aware of his good looks - and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. And Emma loathes him. Partly because she can't resist his smile and the gleam in his eyes... As co-owner of Wilder Adventures and Expeditions, Stone knows when he sees a fish out of water. He also knows how to put it back in the water. When he tries to help Emma loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. He never bargained for a much more intimate encounter. Still, Emma's sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here - in this town, in his life. Convincing her is a challenge he was born to take..."--Publisher's description.
