The Rose Tattoo Trilogy #1
"The house should have been completely quiet."
After being brutally assaulted in her own home, Summer Velasquez recovers slowly from a traumatic brain injury followed by retrograde amnesia, meaning that she doesn't remember anything about her assailant, the attack, or even the past few years of her life. Knowing that she is putting the welfare of her parents in jeopardy if she returns directly home from the hospital, Summer makes a harried decision . . . she runs.
Following Summer to the small town of Elora, Ontario, Ryan Taylor befriends her, after all he is in no immediate danger of being recognized, for Summer shows no signs of remembering who he is. But something down deep inside of her must still be drawn to him, for Ryan sees flashes of their previous connection in her eyes before it quickly clouds over to mild confusion and eventually suspicion. Can he protect her from the real and present danger? Will forgiveness be able to repair what was so tragically damaged? Is God really big enough to lift their burdens, to be a "refuge and fortress . . . what could provide more safety and peace of mind than that?" Angels? They were going to need those, too.
Enjoy this creative twist on romantic suspense! There's a lot you don't know, until you do.
