Ex-soldier Rahl Vendetti returned to his hometown after watching three of his friends die. He should’ve died too. The guilt weighs on him and every breath is fed by a demon of war that taunts his future.
Singer and interior designer Sage Whiteman hit a genetic jackpot when it comes to dying young. She’s living on borrowed time, so letting people in isn’t easy, but the bartender with teddy bear eyes makes her wonder if it’s time to open up.

Sage may be the angel to bring out the gentle giant in Rahl, but can he be the strength she needs to face her uncertain future? Will they save each other and create something unexpected?
