The weather outside is frightful…but her mountain men bears will keep her warm…
Talia Tuesday has it all: an apartment in Los Angeles, a tight-knit group of friends, and a dream job as the head chef of a high-end restaurant. Then she gets the phone call—her beloved big brother has lost his life in a tragic fishing accident, leaving behind Ella, a 12-year-old daughter Tali barely knows. Tali trades her bustling L.A. world for a tiny, Arctic town.
Just when things couldn’t get worse, Tali also finds herself in the orbit of the rude, judgmental, and devastatingly handsome Hudson Quinlan, her late-brother’s best friend. Hudson’s opinions on how to parent the moody young Ella are almost as strong as his muscular arms.
Then there’s Cole Blackburn, a brooding stranger who draws her to him like a magnet. His walls are built up high, and she knows there are secrets lurking behind his fathomless, dark eyes…secrets that have everyone in town steering clear of him.
If all that wasn’t enough, members of their tight-knit community have started to disappear, sending the townsfolk into a panic…and it seems as though these two vastly different men may be the only ones capable of shedding light on the mystery.
