Businessman Cole Dunbar stays
focused inventing the latest techno gadgets. When he learns of his deceased
wife’s betrayal, he shuts the door on any personal relationships. There’s just
one problem—the sexy Dina Wright who lives down the hall. He can’t keep her out

in the middle of the wreckage, staring at the road, her body shaking. Fright
and pain visible in her profile felt like a bullet to his chest, forcing the

Her gaze left whatever caught her
attention and she peered over her shoulder. Their eyes locked. In that moment
of time, no one else existed, not the swirling bright blue and red lights
approaching or the loud sirens demanding attention.
Too afraid if he ran, his legs
would give out from the overwhelming emotions, he walked toward her.
Not moving her gaze from his, she
pulled her lips inward and wiped a hand across her face. She’d been through so
much. Instinctively, he wanted to pull her to him, feel her warmth against his
