With her savings account dangerously close to empty, things are getting desperate for 28 year old Katherine O’Brian. She needs a job and hopes finishing her degree will make it easier to get one. Unfortunately, she’s stuck working with former football player Scott Mitchell on an extremely important class project. He isn’t taking the class seriously, skipping two out of three days the first week. When he is around, it’s difficult to focus on anything but his deep voice or dark eyes.
But Scott is the least of Katherine’s worries. On a cold night, lit only by the moon above, she encountered a man holding a dead body. She escaped and has tried to put the night out of her mind, unaware that the man’s a lunatic and he’s looking for her, with one goal: To eliminate the only witness to his crime.
The class eventually ends but the friendship that has developed between Katherine and Scott does not. When Scott is offered a job out of town, he and Katherine are forced to acknowledge the love they’ve been feeling, but have been suppressing. Are they willing to take a chance on love, or lose the love of their life? Soon, a confrontation between witness and killer will make their choice clear, whether they like it or not.
