Now that he’s back, he buys the Harrington estate. The previous owner is now in jail, and his daughter, Faith Harrington, has returned to town seeking a fresh start of her own. When she opens her own interior design business, Faith’s first job is for Ethan, a job that leads to a lot of time spent with him. Things are heating up, until a surprise arrives on his doorstep that brings him added responsibility and makes his brothers have to interact with him, no matter how they feel toward him personally.
