I'm not usually a fan of women with emotional baggage. Some days I can barely take care of myself, let alone someone with issues. But my new nurse, Lizzy, is different, and I don't know why. Since day one she's been closed and distant—cold, even. I would be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued. She's seductive without even meaning to be. I want to run my hands all over her, to hold her and protect her from whatever she's running from. The hard part is getting her to open up to me, but I want nothing more than to fight those demons with her.
It's time to turn on the charm.
Getting away from Jared and moving to Seattle to start over is the scariest thing I've ever done. My new friends, like Charlie and Doctor Carter, make it easier to fit in and feel safe. But there's a problem...I think I'm falling for Carter.
And I can't, I can't fall for my boss because I can't put him in that situation.
Jared is dangerous, and within time he'll be after me.
Carter doesn't understand. I mean, how could he? He has no idea what my ex-fiancé is capable of. He can't help, the police can't help.
No one can help me now. I want to run, to escape the city, but Carter won't let me go.
I'll protect you, he says. But I fear the only thing that can protect me from Jared is if he's dead.
