Sophie Kingston gets on a commercial turbo-prop with a case filled with legal briefs and ambitions of climbing the corporate ladder at the firm where she's employed. On her own from a young age, with no one she could depend on, Sophie got where she was by her own hard work, never asking anyone for anything. Then her plane fell out of the sky. Trapped in a mountain wilderness, injured and unable to walk, she is forced to depend on a stranger's help for everything in order to survive, whereupon she discovers Jack, with his understanding brown eyes and his unexpected insights, a special kind of man-a man she could trust with her life. And, maybe, even her heart. As Jack Laubreaux looks over the snapped-off wings and other debris scattered over the mountainside, he knows if he hadn't been on the plane it wouldn't have crashed. And seven people wouldn't have died. With that fact weighing heavily on his con-science, his chance at redemption is found in keeping his promise to Sophie-the only other survivor-to get her safely out of the mountains alive. But it won't be easy. Sophie is badly hurt, and it will take all of his ingenuity to find a way to get down to her.
And it will take all of his patience to get past her fierce independence and win her trust. However, the hardest thing of all is meeting Sophie's green gaze and not falling in love with her-and not making her a target, too. Jack is a marked man. His testimony, if he lives to give it, will put a powerful crime boss in prison. And the mobster's mole, "Silent Knight"-someone highly placed in law enforcement, maybe even the FBI-will be watching, waiting and ready to use anyone and anything to find Jack and take him out.
