Suspense and romance set against the backdrop of the sea...

Kaz Jorgensen is used to fear--the anxiety of negotiating treacherous currents as she captains her family's fishing trawlers, the terrifying nightmares of the day she almost lost her life on the river. But now a friend is dead, an arsonist has set the Anna Marie ablaze, and her twin brother is missing, accused of arson and murder.

The new fire chief, Michael Chapman, is coping with personal loss that nearly destroyed him. Right after moving to town, he finds himself dealing with a secretive, insular fishing community that views him as an outsider. And after rumors circulate raising questions about his most recent arson case in his prior job, he can't afford to get involved with the sister of a suspect. But when someone takes a shot at her, he realizes that whatever happens, he can't allow another woman to die because of him.
