Nurse Tori Morgan believes comforting patients as they transition from this world to the next is her life’s calling. Emotionally scarred by personal tragedy, she seeks refuge with a remote assignment in Montana. She loved once, she could never love again and protects her heart as fiercely as she protects those entrusted in her care.
When Wade McBride’s plan to hire a nurse for his mother unexpectedly goes awry, he is forced to do the unthinkable; persuade a total stranger to pretend to be his fiancée.
Bulldozed into working together, sparks ignite, but old wounds run deep and danger is closer than they think. The line between deception and reality blurs, compelling them to look beyond the pretense and take the biggest risk of all.
But can a love born of secrets and lies survive the truth?
