via Hallmark Press Release:

Emmy® Award winner Vanessa Marcil (“General Hospital,” “The Nanny Express”) and James Denton (“Desperate Housewives,” "Grace Unplugged") star in the romantic tropical escape, shot on location in Puerto Rico, and follows the story of a driven executive whose disastrous business trip to a beautiful island turns into an unexpected new beginning.

Tess Nelson (Marcil) is a poised and confident human resources executive who is aiming for a well-deserved promotion.  But when her boss informs her she’s being laid off instead, Tess is furious and worried about letting down her demanding mother, Mona (Cindy Pickett).  Determined to use a business trip to an HR convention in Puerto Rico to score a new job, she is discouraged when the trip is a disaster from the start, and an approaching hurricane makes it impossible to fly home.  But after bumping into a handsome fellow traveler, Carter (Denton), Tess opens up to the possibilities beyond her desk job, and the couple’s adventures on the island bring them closer while the hurricane rolls in.  With help from a fearless and friendly local, Stella (Gladys Rodríguez), Carter and Tess take shelter, and Tess sees taking an unanticipated risk could lead her to a happiness she never dreamed of, and a love that goes beyond a week in paradise.
