Test pilot Sam Reese survived the crash of his plane, but it’s still up for grabs whether he'll survive the strange and astonishing results of his brush with death. When he picks Bourner's Crossing, Michigan, population 213, as a likely place to hide out and lick his wounds, he doesn't plan on getting the hots for the local nurse midwife.... Sexy, nurturing Kate Morgan sees straight through the cracks in Sam's shattered armor, and she aches to give him the compassion and tenderness his tortured soul needs. If only he'll let her. If only she can show him that, no matter how far or fast he runs, he can't escape fate—or love.
