For all of his adult years, Taylor has sought out women who need to be rescued, women he leaves as soon as the relationship starts to become truly intimate. Then one day, a raging, record-breaking storm hits his small Southern town. Denise Holton, a young single mother, is driving through it when her car skids off the road. With her is her four-year-old son, Kyle, a boy with severe learning disabilities and for whom she has sacrificed everything. Unconcious and bleeding, she-but not Kyle-will be found by Taylor. And when she wakes, they realize Kyle is gone. During the search for Kyle, the connection, the lifeline, between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn't know that this rescue will be different from all of the others, demanding far more than raw physical courage.

As a series of threatening incidents wreaks chaos in Maria's life, Maria and Colin will be tested in increasingly terrifying ways.
