She didn't want a part-time love
From the first night when Dr. Jessica Carpenter opened her door to Jason Strong, she sensed he was dangerous. As she nursed his wounds in war-torn San Cristobal, Jessica fell in love with the fugitive reporter.
Then suddenly Jason was gone. Bitterly disappointed, Jessica returned to her home near Washington--to forget.
Just as she began to succeed, Jason returned. "You're all I care about, Jess," he told her. Jessica didn't see how a small-town doctor and a roving reporter could build a permanent life together. And she'd be devastated if he left her again.
