Alice York lives a nomadic life working as a classic car mechanic so she can follow her dream of painting landscapes. Then she breaks down in Sellwood and takes a temporary job with sexy Zach Barret, but getting drawn into this single dad's delightful family is not on the menu. Zach Barret has two priorities – be the best dad he can to his twelve-year-old daughter and keep Martha's Elder House running without hiccups, a challenge at the best of times since his granddad persists on chasing off the hired help. When a gypsy caravan-style truck breaks down at Martha's curbside, the last thing Zach needs is an impulsive pixie rocking his boat. The more determined he is to stay away from the free-spirited, green-eyed nomad, the more he finds one kiss is not enough. Uncovering her secrets in paintings of empty swings and merry-go-rounds puts a new priority in the top spot on his short list. Can he convince this stunning woman to park her truck permanently in his drive?
