Cade King has everything. Living on his family’s Montana ranch with three brothers, life is just about perfect until an accident alters the course of his life. Now, trapped in anger and helplessness, he resents his new situation almost as much as he resents the newcomer who can't seem to let him wallow in his misery. Why won't Layla take the hint and leave him alone? And more importantly, why doesn't she pity him like everyone else does?
Thrown together by circumstance and bound by a connection they can’t comprehend, Layla and Cade begin to let down their defenses and learn to trust each other. As they lower their guards, they realize what they want most may be right in front of them. But the clock is ticking because somewhere a murderer won't stop until Layla is dead.
