When Charlotte Jones buys a house sight unseen in Diamond Hills, Arkansas, she knows her life is about to change. She left her Marine Corps career after her best friend was killed in action. When she stops in town for supplies, she runs into Dot and Henry Diamond, who have their sights set on her for their son Luke. Luke is not willing, and lets Charlie know it at the first opportunity. They eventually decide they can be friends, but why is the air crackling between them every time they meet? Can they resist the chemistry between them? They wouldn't want to let Dot Diamond get the better of them, would they?
