A lifetime of emotion.
When Kirk Webber walked through the doors of United Liberty Savings into a hostage situation, he had no idea the ordeal wouldn't end once he was released. Instead, he'll be haunted by the memory of a fellow hostage, a dark-haired woman who held his gaze during the heist. The moment Kirk sees Mia again, he knows he can't let her go. He'd been powerless to help her then, but there's no way he'll leave her now.
Mia Papadopoulos has done her best to gather up the scraps of her shattered life. In a last-ditch effort, she agrees to fly cross-country to a treatment center specializing in PTSD. But the journey triggers memories of the torture she suffered, and she's sure she's cracking up—especially when she sees Kirk Webber coming to her aid.
All too soon, their journey west will become a tour of discovery for them both. But when old foes threaten to destroy their newfound relationship, they will have to find the courage to put the past behind them and claim the future that awaits.
