Alexandra Colter wants peace, quiet and a chance to recuperate from an overwhelming work schedule. A vacation in the mountains fits the bill, but she never expects to fall in love. Unfortunately, her surgical career is several states away. With a huge student loan to repay, she needs a high-paying job to make ends meet. Charles, the mountain caretaker, falls for Alexandra. He asks her to stay, but a caretaker's salary is a pittance. He can't help with her debt. Yet, if he doesn't provide a solution, her vacation will end, and she will forever be out of his reach. Alexandra refuses to saddle Charles with her heavy debt, but how can she expect him to wait? Charles can't wait. With Alexandra's uncanny ability to uncover one mountain secret after another, he must tell her the mountain's biggest secret of all: his own.
