Meet a wounded warrior suffering from paralyzing guilt and a woman pining for her dead husband--both damaged souls craving comfort for a moment or a lifetime.
Mandy Walters' husband died a hero in the Middle East while saving another man. Three years later, Mandy is struggling to move on and make a viable business of her partially remodeled bed and breakfast on Madrona Island. When a mysterious, handsome stranger shows up and offers to finish her remodel in exchange for room and board, Mandy reluctantly accepts, needing his assistance more than she'll admit.
Brody Jenson has come to the island to pay a debt, even though it's taken him three long years. Reluctant to tell Mandy he's the one her husband died saving, he sets himself up to help her, but she helps him just as much. When the time comes to leave, Brody is torn between this loving woman and his driving desire to conquer the next challenge.
Can the laid-back island life heal a damaged, adrenaline junkie like Brody or must he walk away to save them both?
