Although newly divorced Ashley Adams thinks her ex-husband is trying to kill her, she’s not Running Scared. Months of therapy and determination have strengthened her resolve to stop being a victim, while months of dedicated training have prepared her to run her first marathon.

But it doesn’t take Rick long to realize Ashley Adams is hardly a damsel in distress. In fact, she may be the one woman who can save HIM. He has found danger?—has he also found love?—in the most unexpected of places.
