After a terrible accident, Blake Remington struggles to regain the ability to walk. Therapist Dione Kelly is his final hope - if he can bring himself to trust the woman whose past is shrouded in mystery.
Dione's soul is as paralyzed as Blake's body. Dione wants only to help Blake recover, but as his strength returns, so does his desire to unearth her secrets. When they give in to the passion that flares between them, Dione just might find that her patient is the only one who can heal her private pain.

Say something about yourself!
This book seem to use all the clichés in one book. Beautiful strong woman, handsome bully of a man, strong woman turns in to a crybaby and everybody lives happily ever after. What a waste
Since this is an old book I can't say she needs a new approach, because obviously she has gotten more enjoyable to listen to over the years. I will not listen to any old books again, they are just too painful.
Have listen to this narrator before, but seemed this time she just mutilated the men voices.
Disappointment yes, frustration that I wasted time on the same old same old. Female is tough and able to deal with a difficult man and then turns in to an insecure whiny woman. What is up with that?
First things first...I haven't even listened to the audio book, but I've read the book...let's just say several times and leave it at that.
I have been waiting on this book for years-literally!!! This is an EARLY Linda Howard that has always sucked me in. I've returned to it often and can honestly say I am so very THANKFUL it is FINALLY an audio book.
Can you tell I'm excited??
Once I actually listen to the performance, I'll update the review.
Enjoyed Very Much
Dione made me believe Physical Therapy is possible
I enjoyed Dione - she felt like a real person and a personality was described.
I enjoyed the reading very much.
