Lucy Abbott has experienced enough death to last a lifetime. When she marries a man who helps her through a tough time, she thinks their marriage is forever. There’s only one problem – his idea of forever doesn’t include a life with her. When she overhears his plan to kill her on their honeymoon, she does what any sane person would do. She changes her identity and runs for her life. On the run and out of money, Lucy gets a job and hides out in the last place her husband would ever look, Love Island. Keeping a low profile until she has a chance to figure out her next move should be a piece of cake on an Island full of tourists.
Veterinarian Gabe Love has a secret, and it isn’t his love for animals. He has an ability that allows him to hear a person’s thoughts as if they said the words aloud. No one but his close family knows what he’s capable of, and he’s kept it secret his entire life. When his path crosses with a new Island resident and he overhears her thoughts, all he wants to do is help without explaining how he knows.
He thinks getting the woman to trust him when she flinches from his simple touch is going to be one of the hardest challenges of his life. He’s wrong. As their trust and attraction for each other grows, so does the chance that both of their secrets will be exposed. Falling for a woman who’s already married is hard enough. Keeping her alive might just get them both killed.
