Traveling incognito, Zane MacAllister, Hollywood's hottest heartthrob, has at last eluded the rabid gossipmongers and curiosity seekers who trail him like a pack of coyotes hoping for a bone, and now he has the time and space to sort through his life and see what he's become.
And then he comes upon Roan O'Hara, pale, thin to the point of starvation, a woman at the end of her rope. She's determined to survive the harsh winter in a ramshackle cabin in the Smoky Mountains -- and her grit and vulnerability compel him to stay and help her out.
This mountain woman has secrets, and so does he.
But just when they're about to come clean with each other, the outside world catches up.
Can they find a way to be together, this man who at every turn proves he's a real hero and this woman who has battles she must fight alone?
