Love Never Fails began when twenty-seven-year-old Metropolitan Police Commander Amanda Dansie, on a drugs case, was unexpectedly attacked. Her right knee was shattered by a bullet and four members of her team were killed. Four years previously she had blamed Colonel Mark Young for negligence when her fiancé, whom she had known for twenty years, was killed with two of his colleagues in an explosion in Afghanistan. She had forbidden Mark to come to Andrew's funeral service. After she and her team were attacked, she realized how wrong and unfair she had been to Mark. She came to Derbyshire to recuperate with the intention of contacting him to ask his forgiveness. Unknown to her, when his time was up in Afghanistan, by virtue of his army training and expertise he has joined the Derbyshire police as an Inspector. However, Amanda eventually contacted him and they met a few days before Mark was promoted to Chief Superintendent. They fell in love. When her aunt, Contessa Sophie Gambetti, died, Amanda inherited her fortune, and she had already bought Amanda a twenty-bedroom manor house in Derbyshire. Amanda and Mark married; and they had twins then triplets. Love Never Fails ended with Amanda giving birth to Luca.
