Synopsis: Type R Men: Rescuers. Restless, reckless
Dr. Alexandra Robbins may have a successful career as a psychologist in Chicago, but she's had a very unsuccessful marriage. Right now, she's in the middle of a messy divorce. What a relief to get away from her soon-to-be ex and head for a small town in Idaho to complete her study on Type R men"rescuers," men compelled to risk their lives to save others.
Colin McIntyre caught Alex's attention when his daring rescue of a young child was shown on TV. He's obviously the ideal candidate for her research. Only, he doesn't like the idea of being a guinea pig. He likes her though. So maybe he'll cooperate just a little.
Sounds good to Alex. But the more time she spends with him, the more he fascinates her.
Soon Alexandra Robbins isn't just researching the Type R man anymore!
