And he's the only one who could have prevented it.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and The Lie comes a new standalone contemporary romance about those McGregor men.
Jessica Charles shouldn't have even been in London when the unthinkable happened.
She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, preparing the baby shower for her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always.
But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever.
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes.
That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again.
Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman.
Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her.
And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart.
He may have been a stranger to her.
But she’s never been a stranger to him.
What an amazing story.. I FELT the connection between these two broken characters
right from the start..
This one blew it right out of the park!!
The opening to this story was gut wrenching and utterly raw..
we hear about it on the news so much more frequent now..
I for one always wondered about the survivors of these horrendous radical crimes ..
what of the family and friends of the offender.. how it all impacts everyone involved..
How could anyone deal with this not just physically but mentally!
Guilt is a very ugly thing - something that can consume you.. mix that with lies & secrets and you have a concoction you might never be able to run away from!!
I won't get into the story other than to stay I absolutely loved it..
It was so beautiful to see Jessica and Keir slowly fall in love but I was also on the edge of my seat waiting for all hell to break loose and the shit hit the fan!!
It was emotional, real, raw, sexy, inspiring and the feels just kept coming out of everywhere!!
It's a must read for Karina Halle fans she's out done herself again!!
