Sometimes when you stumble and fall, you discover who’s there to catch you.
Lacey Adams runs at life full bore. She’s a tomboy of the highest order and doesn’t think twice about striding deep into the wilds of Alaska to lead backcountry hikes. She lives and breathes independence and doesn’t rely on anyone. Until life throws her a curveball, and she falls right into the arms of Quinn Haynes.
Quinn is conveniently strong enough to catch Lacey’s fall. He also happens to be an old friend whom she just noticed is way too sexy for her own good. How Lacey managed to get by without ever noticing Quinn was smoking hot, she didn’t know. Now, every time he’s near, she’s afraid she might melt into a puddle.
Quinn is returning home to Alaska after a few years away finishing his medical degree. Lacey might have never noticed him, but he most definitely noticed her. She’s just about the most beautiful woman he’s ever known, her strength and fearlessness so sexy she takes his breath away. He’d long ago given up ever thinking he might have a chance with her. Until one kiss from her sends his tamped down desire up in flames.
Lacey falls into Quinn’s arms for all the wrong reasons, but neither one of them can turn away from the sparks flying between them. Meanwhile, Lacey is facing down a challenge to the strength that defines her and finds herself turning to Quinn for support in ways she never imagined.
Can Lacey let down her guard and allow herself to fall in more ways than one? Can Quinn convince her that what lies between them is worth it?
