Will Alex and Frank be able to overcome Alex’s illness, and their own demons, to embrace love?
Advance praise from Publishers Weekly: "Richardson combines sweet and heat in her second contemporary romance....Richardson aptly captures the myriad emotions and sometimes irrational thought processes of a young woman with a possibly fatal disease, as well as the torment inherent in the idea of losing another loved one to the same illness. This sensitively told and realistically plotted story will grab readers by the heartstrings and not let them go."
