Faye Burke, recently widowed, retreated to the coast of Maine to grieve and reassess her future. Her favorite part of the day is watching the sun rise out of the Atlantic Ocean. It's also when the man she considers her guilty pleasure runs along the beach.
Gil Farrelly, a successful painter, is trying to get his career back on track after the studio fire that destroyed everything. He starts his creative juices flowing every day by running on the beach. The lovely woman who watches him also gets his juices flowing, and he's determined to reinvent his career by painting her.
Faye's combination of maturity and sensual vulnerability intrigue Gil, and he wants to immortalize her on his canvas. She's flattered, aroused, and ultimately frightened of the emotions he incites. He claims not to care he's younger by twelve years, but she believes sooner or later he'll come to his senses and seek out women his own age. Can Faye conquer her fears? Can Gil prove to her it's not age separating them but her fear?
