Park Ranger, Ellie Bradshaw, hasn’t had the best life. If losing both of her parents at the age of eighteen in a car accident weren’t enough, her long-time boyfriend suddenly flies home to Arizona to visit for the holidays - only to never return.
When Ellie encounters Nick Smith by the side of the road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Nick’s unwavering refusal to provide ID presents a challenge and raises red flags for Ellie. Alarmed he could be a criminal lying low in the rugged backcountry, she makes it her mission to uncover the handsome stranger’s identity.
Will she ever be able to overcome her fears and make a life with Nick? And will Nick want a life with Ellie when he finds out the secret she hides?
