are also brought up to date on the latest changes in the Cole dynasty with hints of the next family member to have his (or her) story told.
Celia was wounded during a horrific triple murder, where one of the victims included her fiance, while on duty in a Miami emergency room. She has spent the last year recovering and waiting to be called as the state's sole witness. Deciding to spend time at her home in North Carolina is Celia's next step in the healing process. While there, she encounters Gavin and they bond over a wounded puppy. The FBI has assigned Gavin to bring his brother in safely from an undercover operation. The fact that his case and Celia's shooting are connected is almost an afterthought. Gavin becomes Celia's protector and their growing affection turns into love.
