Synopsis

A gifted but troubled physician, Blue Calhoun runs a thriving practice from his Nob Hill mansion while raising his son after an unthinkable tragedy. Then one day a fugitive with a gunshot wound appears in Blue's surgery. Though she holds a pistol aimed at his heart, the desperation in her eyes awakens Blue's compassion. Reluctantly he is drawn to her fragile beauty, her nerves of steel and the mystery surrounding her.

Isabel Fish-Wooten spent most of her life on the run, but everything changes when she forces a stranger to save her life. Yet her rescue comes with an unexpected price. As Isabel recovers from her wounds, she is touched by this remarkable man and yearns to reach out to him and his son.

From danger-filled back alleys to glittering ballrooms, Isabel and Blue confront the violence and corruption that threatens their newfound passion. Theirs is an unforgettable quest to discover a rare and special love, and the precious gift of a second chance at happiness.
