Dr. Elliot Black has known since the night he met her that Jude Strand is the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. But as he senses her drifting away, he fears that their relationship will end the same way all his relationships end—a quiet, slow death that will leave him exhausted and bitter. The difference is, this time, he refuses to let her go without a fight.
Officer Jude Strand has a high-risk, high-stress job, and while she loves Elliot, she knows that they live in two different worlds. When she learns of a possible infidelity, she assumes that she’s lost him for good. Then he shows up at her apartment, with a packed bag on the back of his motorcycle, and she can’t resist one final weekend with him.
In the beautiful wine country of the Napa Valley, Elliot and Jude seek out the connection that they both fear is lost, and in the process, find something much stronger than either expected.
