Your heroine, a top-notch real estate agent, is known for her knack of finding the perfect homes for her clients. She’s about to show a luxurious, high-tech mansion that boasts all the latest amenities, including a state-of-the-art panic room. During her final walk-through before the open house, a series of unexpected events lead to her getting accidentally locked inside this impenetrable room.

Enter your hero, a security systems expert who installed the panic room years ago. He’s called in by the listing company to troubleshoot when your heroine doesn’t show up for her appointments and can’t be reached. He is ruggedly handsome, with a biting sense of humor that intrigues Sophie even through the steel-reinforced door.

As your hero works to override the security system and free your heroine, the two communicate through the panic room’s intercom system. In the hours they spend talking, they discover shared interests, life stories, and a connection that neither expected. Her wit and determination impress him, while his calm, problem-solving nature reassures her.

When he finally unlocks the door, they come face-to-face for the first time. The chemistry that sparked through the intercom bursts into a flame, leading to a romance neither saw coming.
