As San Juan County Deputy Sherriff, Brett Ure has been responsible for the rescue of several teenage boys and girls along the roadways of southern Utah. Most of them are brief guests in his life, moving on quickly to people and programs who can get them on their feet. But one young man refused to leave his thoughts--Jarom Smith. When Jarom returns to Blanding five years later to help his runaway sister, Brett knows he has to make a choice. Live with the regret of walking away from the only person he ever wanted, or give in to his overwhelming desire while they have the chance.
