Bad things can happen to good people, and lovely, divorced Claudia Harris has had more than her share. Now, her sister's sudden death in a freak medical accident has sent her into the depths of despair she cannot seem to overcome. Until she meets Nate, the ruggedly handsome supervisor of her apartment building. It's Nate's gentle kindness that breaks through the barrier Claudia had erected between herself and a harsh, uncaring world.
Nate McGregor knows what it's like to believe you can't go on. Desperate to escape his own tragic memories, he became a recluse. Once, he was one of Philadelphia's up-and-coming attorneys; now, he lives in the shadows. He understands Claudia's feelings of isolation and loss. And soon, in a moment of crisis, he will become her hero by saving her life. Friends on the verge of becoming lovers, Nate and Claudia struggle through their own pain - only to discover that they are both in desperate danger. With a killer stalking them, they are more determined than ever to fight for their future - and a love that could transform their lives...
