Investigative reporter Joshua Miller has turned his back on life. Since cancer claimed his wife, he can't bring himself to write another story. Then he hears about a fascinating woman who piques his curiosity.
After being struck by lightning, Sarah Reid finds herself with a gift... and a curse. She can heal the sick and dying. She soon realizes that along with the special gift also comes danger to her own life. Feeling responsible for the death of her best friend, Sarah reasons that perhaps she has received the gift to make amends, no matter the personal cost.
Neither expects sparks to fly when they meet. Sarah discourages Josh's persistence in investigating her while he fights his attraction, refusing to acknowledge that she can truly save people.
Can Sarah break through Josh's stubborn cynicism and show him that miracles really can come true by leading him back to love?

Oh my god, I love Sandy James’ Damaged Heroes series for they have action, suspense, romance, passion and most of all, the chance of finding that everlasting love. I loved Sarah Reid for she was an unusual character in this book—nothing I have seen before. Here is a woman who has never known real love but pain, turmoil and regrets all her life. Now Joshua is a man who is perfect for her in every way from his compassion and his faith in still believing about love. These two were great and I loved Josh’s little girl for she is truly bright and smart in this whole book. This is one that will definitely stay in your heart like it has mine. Sandy did a beautiful job in making these characters memorable. Great job and keep up the talented work!
