A woman stumbles into a remote bar on the Carribean island of St. John - and faints. It isn’t the tropical drinks that befell Emily Miles, but the sight of the bartender, Duncan Crawford. In the restless Duncan, Emily is sure she recognizes the young man she has been searching for since he left her at the altar, twenty years ago.
