Aiden Sinclair is taking one day at a time as he struggles with nightmares and his PTSD from his last tour of duty in the middle east. When his long-time gal Friday, Faith Chapman drops a bomb on him that he’d never seen coming, he reacts badly and she quits. It isn’t until after all the dust settles that he realizes how much he’d relied on her and how much he misses her in his life, but feels it’s for the best. He’s nothing but screwed up. Then a close friend draws him into charity functions for AlphaGroup. Aiden’s philanthropic family is tagged for help with Angel Paws, dog therapy for wounded warriors with PTSD, something that is close to his heart. What he doesn’t expect is it’s Faith’s brainchild.
Faith has been in love with Aiden from the moment she met him when he gave a starving student a job. But after he came back from his tour of duty, he wasn’t the same man and Faith has struggled to keep her secret love for him under wraps. But when it slipped out during a close, tender moment with him and he reacted so badly to the declaration, Faith had no choice but to move on. Now Aiden is involved in her bid to AlphaGroup for financial assistance to turn her Nanna’s rundown estate into a retreat for warriors mentally scarred from the battlefield and the amazing power of canine love to rescue these heroes. Will Aiden’s involvement help him to find his own path to healing? As they draw closer and closer together, can she even hope that he would ever return the love that still burns strongly in her heart and finally discover what matters most?
