Back Cover Blurb:
When a mysterious stranger is your only hope...
The scars of the past have left their mark, both physical and emotional, on former military pilot Seth Erickson.
Off grid in the far reaches of the bitter Alaskan wilderness, he wants only to be left alone with his ghosts.
But he can’t ignore
a woman in need—beautiful, stranded and nearly frozen with fear.
Summer Silva never imagined that the search for her missing sister would leave her abandoned on a wintry
back road, barely escaping with her life from a cold-blooded killer for hire. Now, hiding out in the isolated cabin of the secretive wounded warrior who saved
her, Summer knows she must do what she fears most. Putting her trust in a stranger is all she has left.
All defenses are down
After a fiery first night together, Seth and Summer are bound by a need as powerful as a Bering Sea
superstorm—and vulnerable to enemies just as fierce. For Seth, reawakened by desire, there is no sacrifice
too great, no memory too dark, to keep Summer safe. But murder and treason lurk everywhere and
Summer may not survive Alaska’s ruthless winter.
