Ten years is a very long time to carry a crush on a guy, but for Dr. Chelsea Majors, there can be no other. She met him at the tender age of 17, and one kiss was all it took to capture her heart--hook, line, and sinker. However, the timing could not have been more off.
When he lost his wife Laura and their unborn child, Dr. Jared Floyd vowed he would honor his wife’s memory and never give his heart to another woman. His guilt over her death has insured he kept that vow going on ten years now, but with Chelsea coming back everything is about to change.
It takes every ounce of willpower Jared possesses to stay away from Chelsea, but he fears he is fighting a losing battle. Her laughter and sparkling eyes are like knives to his heart, and when she turns them on him, he is in near physical pain. Chelsea can see the battle waging in Jared, but she cannot and will not try to force someone to love her. She carries the physical scars of trying to be what her parents wanted, but a rejection from Jared may scar her very soul.
It takes the heart of a true fighter to know when to step back and take stock of the situation, and Chelsea is definitely a fighter. She puts her heart on the line, but when Jared continues to play the martyr, she finds the strength to realize she deserves better. Being honest with oneself would go a long way in Jared’s case, and living for a ghost is really not living at all. This story is full of triumph and tragedy, making for an emotionally fired love story.
