Marilee Ferguson, the story’s protagonist, has had her share of adversities. From midnight abductions to the damaging dynamics of her dysfunctional family, Marilee has been navigating life’s tribulations without a roadmap. She’s been dismissed, shunned, and now, finally, rescued. This is where Cooper Waddell steps in, the military man who’s seen enough to trust his gut. His mission to rescue her from a religious cult is complete, but the task isn’t over for him. Marilee doesn’t wish to return to her old life, and this provokes Cooper to offer her an alternative—another small town, another fresh start.
This isn’t a tale of love at first sight. Marilee’s walls take time to break down. With each panic attack she experiences, Cooper is there, becoming increasingly important in her new life. It raises questions in Cooper’s own mind—questions that grow, looming larger with every interaction. Could he be the man Marilee needs, despite the glaring age gap? With every layer that Marilee sheds, the potential for something deeper grows within him. For a man trained to make quick decisions, Cooper now grapples with one that could change both their lives.
