Book Description

Rain is blackmailed by a woman who demands that she let her sleep in her basement and service her late at night or else she will kill her husband and see to it that a certain picture goes viral that she wouldn’t want to share with the world.

Eventually, Rain works up the nerve to tell her husband what’s going on and they move to another place. Just went they start to feel safe and comfortable, the woman reappears to Rain, but is never apprehended.

Rain and her husband move cross-country and rent an apartment for a few months until they find a place that ends up across from one of Rain’s doctors. She gets another doctor and they become friends. The doctor, who is lonely after losing her husband, becomes obsessed with Rain, and when Rain’s own husband is killed, she is certain that the madwoman has tracked them down.

But the doctor’s hopes of Rain moving in with her are dashed when Rain decides the doc comes on a little too strong.

Then Rain has a nervous breakdown after the loss of her husband and ends up in the psych hospital. One of the nurses comes to care for her, and Rain finds the feeling is mutual.

But can Nurse Elizabeth keep Rain safe?
