Michaela Marie Chadwick (nicknamed Mica) has inherited Sea Crest, her great-great-aunt's home on the island, Indigo Bay. Built in the early 1800's, the old home has been converted to a bed and breakfast. Mica sees her inheritance as an opportunity to escape and come to grips with her life. She's initiated a divorce against her irresponsible husband, and she's unhappy working in her father's law firm. As Mica searches for her answers, she hears loud voices and music from the second floor. She investigates, passing through a door to ather section of Sea Crest where she encounters T. Logan Rutledge, whom she assumes is a guest, but who is actually the original owner of the island, which he calls Indigo Bay. Because Sea Crest has maintained the antiques and grandeur of a previous century, Mica visits Logan several times before realizing the door she passes through leads from her present day back in time to 1850. Logan Rutledge is intrigued by the mysterious, beautiful woman who keeps appearing and disappearing in his life. But even as he finds himself falling in love with her, Indigo Bay is plagued by unexplained fires and crop destruction guaranteed to bring disaster to his plantation. And in the middle of all his problems, Mica insists she's from the future, and she can help him find the solution to his problems from journals in her time. While past and present travel parallel to each other, Mica and Logan are drawn into intrigue where mystery and treachery intertwine and threaten their lives and their love.
