Recovering addict Jamie Yorke has returned to England from California. With no home or family to speak of, he sticks a pin in a map and finds a small town in the Derbyshire Peak District. Matlock Bath is a quiet place--he just needs to get there, keep his head down, and stay clean. Simple, right? Until a chance meeting on the flight home alters the course of his so-called life forever.

Ex-Army medic Marc Ramsey is recovering from life-changing combat injuries while pulling nights as a trauma specialist at the local hospital. Keeping busy is a habit he can't quit, but when Jamie--so wild and beautiful--bursts into his life, working himself into the ground isn't as compelling as it used to be.

Marc falls hard, but chaos lurks behind Jamie's fragile facade. He's winning his battle against addiction, but another old foe is slowly consuming him. Both men have weathered many storms, but the path to the peace they deserve might prove the roughest ride yet.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this emotionally raw romance, a loose sequel to Rented Heart, two men who both bear the physical and emotional scars of their respective pasts come together for healing and companionship. Recovering drug addict Jamie Yorke, looking to rediscover purpose in his life, moves to the small English town of Matlock Bath, which he picked at random. There he meets Marc Ramsey, a doctor and former Army medic still coming to terms with the leg he lost in the service, who hires Jamie to help around the house. What starts off as a way to keep them both focused on leading healthy, productive lives quickly grows into something deeper, and they move from friendship to love. They're undoubtedly good for one another, but they have issues to overcome, especially Jamie's self-doubt and struggle to remain clean. This is a gritty, visceral tale, with Jamie's addiction problems and Marc's traumatic past constantly affecting the narrative. The easy chemistry and positive connection between the two leads fuels a believable, satisfying relationship in which they're compatible everywhere from the kitchen to the bedroom, and it's easy to root for their happiness.
