But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever.
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes. That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again.
Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome, and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman. Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her. And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart.

Another great Karina Halle romance!
I have been a Karina Halle fan since "The Pact" and have loved every installment in her McGregor series. This book did not disappoint! I was impressed with the way she let us in to Jessica's mind and feel the horror of living through an act of terror in the streets of London. I am happy to report that Jessica is a firecracker and not a loathsome "woe is me" character. Keir McGregor is damaged as well, and both of them are strong characters that push through and live each day with their baggage from the past. The chemistry between the two was great from the start! Their growing attraction for each other was believable and natural. Unlike many other romance books, this did not feel forced.
Lidia Dornet does a fantastic job of narrating both Jessica's voice as well as the Scottish brogue of the other characters. Antony Ferguson's voice is rich and deep and very swoon-worthy! Admittedly, as a voice actor, I believe he could do better when narrating the female voice - it comes across a bit too high and with a strange somewhat southern accent. Regardless, I could listen to these two all day.
