Titus, a former member of the Platoon, has been nursed back to health by those of Rescue One, and now lives with them and the Saviors. An SR44 male without his mate, he struggles every day to find the will to live.
Macy, an SR44ian Healer, has worked relentlessly to help Titus move on with his life, but has been met with rude behavior and ingratitude. He responds by continually driving her away, until one night she forces him to realize that perhaps he does want to live.
To the surprise of them both, their unexpected friendship becomes something more, and the two become lovers. However, it is understood that Titus' dead mate will always have his heart and their relationship can never move beyond friends with benefits.
When a series of events leaves Macy in the torturous hands of a Colonist, Macy finds strength she never imagined she had. Titus realizes his true feelings for her and just how desperately he needs her in his life...and he'll stop at absolutely nothing to get her back.
