Bruce Mclean is a man who has experienced more tragedy and blessing in his forty-five years than most people would over several lifetimes.
Orphaned at six when his mother died of a heroin overdose he was fortunate enough to be adopted by a loving and caring couple – but tragedy struck again at twelve when his adoptive mother died of cancer and yet again in high school when his adoptive father was killed in a car accident.
Bruce enters adulthood completely alone in life and haunted by dreams of a mother he barely remembers.
Both exceptional and flawed in many ways, Bruce perseveres and marries a beautiful woman with whom he fathers a daughter and he goes on to build a successful business empire.
But fate isn’t near finished with Bruce – years later, divorced, he makes a lifestyle choice to relocate to a small idyllic mountain town and determines to move on in another phase in his life.
There he meets a very sexy & very dangerous woman named Tara, and is thrust into a web of sex, lies, deceit & betrayal that threaten not only his business & wealth but everything he holds dear.
Tara is from a different world than Bruce – an ex-marine & mercenary – she is a very strong female and is an unapologetic psychopath. Like Bruce, Tara is extremely active and after a few sessions of tearing up the mountain bike trails as well as ravaging each other, Bruce is completely under the spell of this alluring woman.
But all is not what it seems and Bruce soon finds that to protect his loved ones, he must navigate through the impossible odds stacked against him by those that would seek his destruction, while at the same time dealing with his own inner demons and a tragic past that seems determined to follow him.
