When Sydney left her career as a hospital Emergency Director and Garrett moved on from the FBI, thoughts of tragic and traumatic events slowly begin to fade from their minds. Now, what they both want—and need—is a simple life breeding horses. What they get, however, is something far worse than either of them could ever imagine.
The proverbial storms of life begin raging when Sydney’s friend Janet is murdered by a demented ex-boyfriend and Garrett’s brother Kevin is critically injured trying to protect her.
Gabby, a horse-whispering trainer, is brought in to function as a part-time trainer and part-time therapist for Kevin while he recovers from his wounds.
Soon, Sydney discovers that a drug cartel member named Jose’, an extremely dangerous and unpredictable man whom Garrett had locked up years earlier, has just escaped from prison, and his mind is set on one thing—revenge.
With Garrett out of town and the FBI standing by in a limited role, Sydney is faced once again with the most critical of decisions; stand and fight or…flee.
