Can a perfect love heal even your deepest wounds? As a helicopter medic, Daniel Bliant saves other people's lives. He's cool under pressure, a calm presence for trauma victims on the worst day of their lives. So why can't he heal himself? When he answers an emergency call at Phil's Bar, he can't believe who the bartender is: the beautiful woman he saw in his ER months ago and hasn't been able to stop thinking about. But even though Annika is intelligent, lively, and gorgeous, he knows he should forget her. He hasn't worked through his own trauma after the incident that left him shattered, so how can he possibly think about love?
Annika Mehta loves her job as a kindergarten teacher, even if the low pay means she has a side gig tending bar at Phil's. She may be reeling from a bad breakup and the terrible event that caused it, but she knows she's resilient. What she doesn't need is Daniel. He's wrong for her in every single way, but somehow, she can't let him go. This tear-jerker of a romance follows two souls in need of healing--when all roads lead back to each other.
Mona is obsessed with everything romantic, so she writes romantic stories by night, even though she's an optometrist by day. If she's not writing, she's making chocolate truffles, riding her bike, or reading, and is just as likely to be drinking wine or gin & tonic with friends and family. She's blessed with an amazing daughter and loving son who have both gone to college. Mona lives in Maryland with her romance-loving husband.
