Martina Hughes doesn't believe her brother died of natural causes, and is determined to find a way to prove it. But soon she has reason to fear for her own life. First come the threatening phone calls, then anonymous footsteps that seem to echo from every shadow. Now she has discovered a man outside her secluded Vancouver cabin -- a wounded stranger who needs her help.
Denby Williams was hired to stop Martina's investigation into Paul Hughes's death. But that's before a cliffside accident leaves him dependent on the very woman who should fear him most -- a vulnerable beauty who saves his life... only to awaken a fierce desire to protect her at any cost. With Martina, Denby will discover a passion beyond his wildest dreams, but what happens once she discovers who he really is? Will she turn against him now that she needs him more than ever -- as danger threatens the happiness he longs to find with her?
