On the same day military nurse Kim Torres lost her fiance in Afghanistan, she also learned that he had been cheating on her. Now back to Long Island, Kim has withdrawn herself from family and friends, unable to destroy everyone’s image of Tom as their decorated hero. In fact, she has left nursing all together and is now nannying for Reliance executive Harper Poole.
When Kim’s car breaks down, Harper sends her friend and boss, Owen Kent, to give her a lift. Owen was Tom’s commanding officer and is also just back from his recent tour. He knew Kim from that day in the hospital when she collapsed from grief and he was the one there to catch her. She must not have memories of him from the traumatic day, but he hasn’t stopped thinking about her since.
There is no question that Owen is hot, smart and charming, but Kim doesn’t feel like she can trust another man after Tom’s betrayal. Owen is not easy to stay away from and just when their lust is about to cross into love territory, a secret from their time at war rears it’s ugly head and might shatter any chance these two who were destined for each other might have.
