"When you love someone, there's suddenly a whole lot more to consider, to risk, to fight for."
Mackenzie "Mouse" James's life is all about firefighting. Being a firefighter fills her waking hours, leaving her too tired to think, to socialize, or to put herself out there. A large part of Sarah Macarthur's success as a doctor is due to the structure and control that she has established to help her cope when all the elements are thrown her way.
A chance encounter late one rainy night brings Mac's and Sarah's worlds together. As danger draws closer, they are tested in ways neither had ever imagined. Both must fight far more than fear--they will need to fight for the lives of those they love.
