Thirty-year-old Lelia Snyder is devastated when her aunt Tressie dies after a battle with ALS; now she’s the last living member of her family, and she feels truly alone. Even so, she manages to find joy in starting her life over, thanks to the generous inheritance Tressie has left her.
Life only gets better for Lelia when she meets a blond Adonis named Jason Ferguson. The honeymoon is planned, and everything seems perfect—until Lelia discovers a shocking truth about Jason. She flees her home, driving frantically into a blinding winter blizzard and losing her way on a narrow mountain road. An avalanche of snow and rock then pushes her vehicle over the edge of a cliff, burying her in a grave of snow. But Lelia is not ready to die.
Trevor Howard rescues Lelia and cares for her in his mountain cabin. As she awakes in his bed and looks into his smoldering gray eyes, she knows the two will never part. When Leila and Trevor return home, they reach new heights in their sensuous discovery of each other—only to find the demons of death have stalked them from the their idyllic mountain retreat.
