Santiago Durn walks straight out of Di Monroejs dreams--crutches and all--into her heart. Therejs only one problem: shejs already married.
Dijs parents died suddenly when she was nineteen, leaving her shattered and grateful for Stephenjs rescue. Over the past ten years, her identity has faded into her husbandjs logical, controlling shadow, but with familiarity lies comfort. When she heads to New Orleans for an editing convention, she meets Santiago--handsome, smart, and despite being affected by Beckerjs muscular dystrophy, someone who sees the real Di, who appreciates her and wants her to shine. Pregnant after their one-night stand, Di realizes putting her "mistake" behind her wonjt be easy.
Caught between her loyalty to her husband and the uncertain paternity of her baby, Di soon begins falling for Santiago, drawn to his strength and confidence, yet also his compassion and vulnerability. With Santiagojs help, Di experiences new passion, kindles hidden desires, and uncovers the sheltered part of herself she thought shejd lost long ago. Together, they discover that love is more than mere chemistry, but instead, means youjve found the person with whom you can be yourself.
