How do you thank someone for saving your life? Molly Keating had never found the right words to thank Mick Knight for saving her from the car accident that almost killed her and left her severely injured. When she learns the hunky firefighter is up for auction at a charity fundraiser, she figures the very least she can do is bid to take him to dinner and extend her gratitude. Mick is thrilled to seen Molly again, but he hates to see the self-doubt that is so evident in her beautiful hazel eyes. The charismatic Mick, with his commanding sex appeal and devilish charm, sets out to put the spark back into the woman he's been unable to forget. When Mick followed his fire-fighting father into a career that too often leads to an early grave, he knew the risks. He long ago accepted that he may have no future, and thus has avoided relationships out of fear-fear of commitment and fear of risk. As the passion between them ignites and the feelings build, Mick finds that he must make a choice, and Molly finds herself wondering if the impossible just might be possible. Do they live the rest of their lives in fear, or do they follow their hearts and take a chance. . .on love?
