Recovering from a heartbreaking divorce, prominent YouTuber Maximillian Roselle finds himself a single father of two young children. Lonely and in pain, they cling to each other on the island of happiness he has created for them, longing for a wholeness they cannot voice.
When strong-willed, compassionate, and empathetic Ruthie Eden enters their world, hope for that wholeness is born. Her heart bleeds for Max’s children and she is compelled to heal three broken hearts.
Slowly and cautiously Max weaves her into the fabric of their lives fearing she will compromise his trust, yet hoping she may be the healing balm his family needs.
“I can’t and won’t be a regret. I won’t allow you to be a regret. I respect and care for you too much for anything like that to happen to either of us.”
“Ruthie, I …” He started advancing toward me.
I flung out a hand, and mercifully, he stopped in his tracks.
“It would be empty, Max. I don’t want any kiss I ever have to be meaningless. I will want love and fire and passion and promise. I know you can give me two of those things, but it’s the other two that mean everything. And I am worth those and so much more. I won’t allow myself to do this, no matter how much I want to.”

The delicate paper menu held only a few choices, and my eyes widened at the prices. I should have thought to ask where we were going before I agreed. I didn’t have the money to spend so much on dinner, especially since Peter had moved out and money was much tighter. My heart thudded in my chest as I quickly scanned for the cheapest item on the menu; even the side salad was nearly fifteen dollars. How do people afford this? Well, the salad comes with bread and a bowl of soup, so at least it should be enough to fill me up.
The waiter, clad in a white dress shirt and perfectly pressed black pants, appeared just as I laid the menu down. “Have we had enough time?” he asked politely, glancing at each of us before focusing his attention on Philip, who took the lead in ordering.
“Yes, we’ll have two glasses of your finest red wine and two plates of the steak and lobster, grilled medium well.” He handed his and Raquel’s menus to the waiter.
“Very well,” the waiter nodded and turned his attention to me.
I swallowed. “Um, I’ll have the side salad and the tomato soup.”
The waiter cocked his head. “Will that be all miss?”
My face flushed, and just as I was about to answer, Henry jumped in. “Yes, and the same for me please.” He handed our menus to the waiter.
The waiter nodded. “Yes, sir, and anything further to drink?”
Henry glanced at me; I shook my head. “No, water will be adequate for now, thank you.”
As the waiter turned away, I regarded Henry. Who was this man, and why was he being so nice to me? He caught me staring and shot me a small wink as he picked up a piece of bread.
