Determined to escape the foolish mistakes in her past, Aubrey Keller moves across the country to start over as a speech pathologist in Astoria, Oregon. She thought she’d run far enough until Jake Womack walks back into her life, and she’s reminded of what might have been.

As a straight-laced US Coast Guard helicopter pilot, Jake Womack is driven and focused. His primary mission is avoiding potential disasters and rescuing the lost. But Aubrey’s sudden departure three years ago set his heart adrift. 

When Aubrey is tasked with helping Jake’s young nephew speak again, Jake believes this is a second chance to restore their relationship. But Aubrey is convinced Jake will never truly love her–not when he finds out the scandalous reason for her goodbye.
