A field agent betrayed, tortured, and broken. Can the gentle love of his nurse heal his wounds?
Ian Grant withstood captivity and ruthless torture on his latest mission. Now home, his body slowly heals from the deep physical injuries. His mind, though, refuses to mend — and his voice refuses to return. Unable to answer the persistent questions of his superior agents, Ian grows despondent. Until he meets beautiful nurse practitioner, Hazel Baker.
Hazel's job is to treat bodies, but compassion calls her to heal Ian's deeper wounds. Agreeing to care for him long-term from her home, Hazel sees how PTSD unravels Ian's thoughts and behavior. He seems a mental mess, but the warmth in his eyes shows promise, and when he interacts with her four-year-old daughter, the single mother catches a vision of resiliency even Ian doesn't see any longer.
As Hazel and Ian work on his recovery together, Agency corruption threatens his peace. His trauma can be put to rest only by regaining his voice and speaking against the brutality. Can Hazel's sweet love help him find the way back to the man he used to be?
