Emma returns to Wishful, Calif., to maintain her father's clinic while he recuperates from a heart attack. The urgent care center is a far cry from Dr. Emma Sinclair's previous position in a prestigious New York City emergency room. Wanting to return to big-city life, Emma maintains a level of professionalism and distance from the clientele.
Stone Wilder is a regular patient at the clinic due to mishaps from his work at Wilder Adventures and as a rescue worker. Tempted by the sexy and charismatic Stone, the usually all-work-and-no-play Emma finds that personal relationships are oftentimes a lot harder but definitely more satisfying than the sterile and grueling work of a busy ER.
