Forced to quit another job because of a handsy boss, Ashley Ames escapes to the small coastal town of Pine Cove, Maine to figure out her next move in life. Returning, though, means seeing the man that’s been on her mind day and night for the past seven months. And with one look from him, she knows she shouldn’t have come.
Sheriff Ryan Taylor is a man who gets what he wants, and he wants Ashley. She can deny it, but he refuses to believe she doesn’t remember how good it was. And so when a blizzard hits, leaving Ashley stranded, Ryan comes to her rescue like a white knight. But playing house was never in her plans.
As the snow continues to fall, and the world outside becomes nonexistent, everything starts to become too real, too fast, and running seems like the only way to protect her heart.
