We learn who we are when we're pushed to our limits.
Federico Renard is a rising champion in the world of road cycling. Lately, his whole world is upside down: his fiancée has ceased all communication, his enigmatic former team captain has returned to the sport in a whirlwind of media attention, and now Federico no longer leads the team. All before the Tour d'Europa – the longest, hardest, and most rewarding cycling race in the world – has even gotten underway.
Abigail White is shooting the Tour, taking a mid-life stab at the photojournalism career she'd dreamed of before marrying. Unfortunately her husband, Charles, is making the project anything but enjoyable. Worse yet, Abigail suspects the distance between them comes from his secret long-distance love affair with an associate back home in England.
When Federico comes to Abigail's assistance after a crash at a stage finish, the fleeting encounter is innocent enough. As time passes and chance keeps bringing them together, they find themselves struggling to resist the temptations the other provides. The cost could be too great – his place on the team and her marriage are both at risk – but it's difficult to hold back for the sake of coming out ahead.
