With a troubled childhood and a dark past looming over her shoulder, James is untrusting of others therefore lets very few people into her life.
That is until she stumbles -- literally -- into Tristen, a computer software engineer who won't take 'no' for an answer. He's different, kind, and fun. And French. He wants to get to know her, but will her past drive him away like the others and if he does stay, can he endure damage of her skeletons tumbling out of the closet?
