Even though he’s out of the combat zone, Jaxon Cutter can’t shake his memories of war. And when he encounters a down-on-his-luck veteran living on the streets, his sense of duty towards a comrade-in-arms comes rushing back. Refusing to leave a soldier behind, he vows to help his new friend pull together the pieces of his broken past and reconcile with his estranged daughter.
Still wounded from her father’s abandonment, Mia Kent doesn’t know if she can find it in her heart to forgive. But after she receives his remorseful letter, she’s finally ready to listen to his side of the story. Before they can reunite, a brutal criminal conspiracy rips them apart and unites her with the charming soldier who stood by her father’s side.
Thrown together by tragedy, Jaxon and Mia grow closer as they plunge into a dark world of violence. Can they catch the culprits and find love or will their hearts push past the breaking point?
