A paralyzed patient clinging to faith for his recovery. A brilliant surgeon relying on her skills to heal his wounds. But it’ll take a miracle for their forbidden love together to survive.
For the past year, Paul Hanson’s chronic pain has affected his ability to do what he loves most -fight for his country. The moment he accepts his limitations, the old battle injury deals him a new blow, robbing him of his ability to stand tall like the proud warrior he is. Another surgery is the last thing he wants, and when a beautiful female surgeon asks him to trust her skilled hands, Paul is more focused on how he can get her hand in marriage.
Dr. Madison Gray left her life in the big city for a promising new position in the middle of nowhere Montana. But her cheating ex-boyfriend follows her, not only trying to steal his way back into her heart but trying to steal her new job! Madison needs to impress her boss with her surgery skills, plus she knows it’s the key to helping Paul walk again. But the battle-weary wounded warrior is a trying patient, trying her patience with his disarming charm and flirtatious attitude.
While she tries to get him to agree to go under the knife, Paul just wants to sweep Madison off her feet. But can he do that while lying prone on a hospital bed? Madison is convinced that without the surgery, he might never stand on his own two feet—even worse, if her growing feelings for her patient become known, she could lose her career.
