For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels like she can do some good. The only problem is that Lilly's uncle, Jacob, is handsome and kind and just too easy to talk to.

And as Lilly and Rebecca grow closer, Jacob's fondness for Rebecca grows, too. But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire.
