Jessica Savage, the victim of a drunk driver who killed her husband and left her a paraplegic, is being stalked. She wants the terror to stop. In an effort to stop the escalating violence and uncover the stalker, she teams up with Mac Mcready.
Mac has been a cop for fifteen years. The job has already cost him his first marriage. More recently, the job cost the life of his partner, Loretta--a death he feels he should have been able to prevent. He's determined nothing will happen to Jess. For only by keeping Jess safe can he atone for the loss of his partner.
Jess, reluctant to become involved with any man after the car accident that robbed her of her ability to function normally, does not want a caregiver. She wants a man who will love her as a woman. Even though she is attracted to Mac, she keeps her distance, afraid that when he realizes life with her will be difficult, he'll abandon her.
