Emily Redfern's ex-fianc� learned to kill on the back streets of New York. Now, she is his target. Broke, exhausted, and a step ahead of the man she once loved, she clings to one last hope: the wilds of Alaska. The quiet safety of her hide-a-way becomes addictive as she grows to care for the man who offers her refuge.

Released from prison after a wrongful conviction, native Alaskan Sam Tarkington is determined to regain his business, repair his reputation, and rebuild his life. But when he meets a desperate and vulnerable woman, guarding secrets of her own, she tugs at his heart. She's a distraction he can't afford. Sam must choose Emily or achieving his dreams.

Like Emily's life, the peacefulness of the wilderness is an illusion as danger lurks in the distance. Does Sam hold the key to her survival or will her past cost them everything?

I love to read about new places in my novel reading and since I’ve never been to Alaska I found this novel an interesting read. The pace is consistent and though I've read similar plots the gorgeous setting balances that out. The characters of Emily and Sam are equably likeable, their relationship a gradual development as the story unfolds. The secondary characters provide a nice rounded background. If I ever get to Alaska, I’ll be watching out for the unexpected int he woods!

Fleeing from her murdering ex-fiance, Emily Redfern hunkers down in Juneau, Alaska. Sam Tarkington, a bartender who moonlights as a cabbie, offers her the couch of the boardinghouse where he rooms when it turns out she has no place to stay. Gradually, Emily falls into the rhythms of Alaskan life and makes friends, though she can’t help but glance over her shoulder for her murderous ex. Trust is a big issue for her, and Sam’s secret terrifies her. But when trouble comes, she instinctively seeks Sam’s help and protection. Linda Trout’s story gave me a fine taste of Alaska, of its people and of its lands. I enjoyed reading Emily and Sam’s story.
