As an emergency room nurse at an Albuerque hospital Sunny Steele had tended countless trauma victims. But she'd never encountered a patient like the lieutenant. Injured while saving a child, the man refused medication until he could speak with the surgeon. The courage and agony in his striking gray eges touched Sunny. This man was different.
To block out the pain, Drew Williams focused on her gentle brown eyes and halo of strawberry blond hair. But even his angel of mercy could not heal his shattered leg or his shattered life. His career finished, he feared he was no longer a whole person, no longer a man who could define his world by the pistol on his hip and the sirens blaring through the night.
Years later, Sunny was surprised to encounter the brave lieutenant who still haunted her dreams. She found him compelling in a dark, brooding way. But Drew wanted nothing to do with the angel of his dreams. Women like her expected children and a home with a white picket fence. Sunny's life was just beginning. And Drew believed his life had ended the day his dreams had been shattered.
