On a gloomy wet day in January 2009 Flint the “Black Knight” Jackson rejoices at the funeral of his father; a man he broke when he stole the business that his dearest dad built from the feeble old man. The Black Knight never forgave his father for relocating the family from Milwaukee to Chicago to start that business when Flint was a tweener while his preadolescent girlfriend Jessie Nelson moved to California ignoring his pleading she come with him. Next on his list is Jessie’s business Nelson Cosmetics.

However, Flint’s plan that was almost completed was derailed by a car accident fifteen months after watching gleefully his dad being buried. Two months later extremely an selfish Jessie is found not breathing in a back alley, but the EMTs save her life. She vows to turn her life around making up for all those people she has hurt over the years and volunteering at the Milwaukee Wayward Angels shelter. Now three decades since they went their separate ways, Flint has returned to her and Milwaukee seeking atonement like Jessie with his second chance at life. Both are stunned that their youthful attraction remains strong.

The sixth Wounded Warrior tale stars two interesting lead characters who share in common a life of destroying others until both face death and know miraculously they survived. The story line is fast-paced from the moment a bitter cynical Flint watches with joy from a distance his father buried mad never slows down until the pirate and his lady find one another. Christian romance readers will enjoy the redemption second chance at love tale.
