Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Rowan McKinnon believes love isn't real. With a botany Ph.D., two best friends who embrace her social quirkiness, and some occasional no-string sex, she thinks she has everything she needs. but she hides deep wounds from the past--from an emotionally negligent mother and a fiancé who treated her like a pawn in a game. The only love she's ever known came from her grandmother Edie, who taught her to care for all things that grow. After a chance encounter at a future winery, Rowan takes on the restoration of the property's abandoned vineyard, immersing herself in nurturing the grapes back to their former glory--and trying not to think about Harrison Brady. An obstetrician profoundly struggling after losing a patient, Harry Brady no longer believes he is capable of keeping people safe. Reeling from the loss and a crumbled romantic relationship, Harry leaves Los Angeles to emotionally recover at his parents' new vineyard in Pennsylvania... As soon as he meets Rowan, sunlight begins to crack through the darkness smothering Harry's soul. He's compelled to explore the undeniable pull between them. After spending a lifetime protecting herself from feeling anything, for anyone, Rowan tries to keep things casual. But even she can't ignore their explosive connection."--Page 4 of cover.
