Very few people can keep up with Eva Stamford. She’s chatty, volunteers everywhere in the community, and has one passion in life—saving the Lumholtz tree kangaroo before the curse comes true.​

Jack Waller is broody and gruff and couldn’t be more different from Eva. He’s returning to his childhood home to make good on a promise to his mother, but everywhere he goes, Eva is there. The more time they spend together, the harder it is to ignore the chemistry intensifying between them. 

Eva needs to stay on Jack’s good side because his property borders the Tree Roo Rescue Park, and any changes he makes might unsettle her furry babies. She needs to tell Jack about the curse and forget about encouraging one final fling. Is there a chance of beating the curse and living a life together?
