Emma Taggart is a headstrong determined woman who knows exactly what she wants. That would be Finn Avery—not because he's a wealthy millionaire with a mountain of gold…literally, but because all her life she's had a crush on him. He also happens to be her best friends brother.
When Emma finds herself in the small town of Dawson City, Yukon, for a second time she realizes the beauty of the wilderness has grown on her. Granted the place is a far cry from the glamorous city of Chicago. Her job was to film and produce a special story for the prominent Chicago magazine, Fashion, Flare and Style featuring a local native's boutique. It seemed a perfect way for her to spend time with Finn.
Trouble begins when Finn's best friend and partner passes away. Finn blames himself for the death and turns away from those who care. Emma knows he cares for her, the heated moments spent together spoke the truth, but now she can't seem to break through to him.
When the pompous billionaire Marco Bishop comes parading into town offering to buy the Avery Gold Mine, Finn is furious. The man has little respect for the town and its heritage, even worse he has come to fancy Emma and is determined to have her as his next conquest. Not only does Marco want the gold mine but he's certain he knows where to find diamonds. Marco drugs Emma and takes her on his quest in search of the diamonds and by the time she wakes she realizes she's in trouble.
Upon discovering Emma is gone, Finn suspects she's been taken against her will. Finn is determined to find her and bring her home. Along the way he unexpectedly finds some interesting clues cast in the stones.
Come hell or high water, he refuses to let anything happen to her, but finds himself wondering if he might be too late to save the only thing that truly matters to him.
