In the wake of abruptly ending her engagement with her Silicon Valley business partner, Summer Avila stumbles upon a long-forgotten reservation for a rustic cabin nestled in the snowy mountains. On a whim, she decides to escape the holiday hustle and use the opportunity for some soul-searching—alone on Christmas Eve.
But her plans take an unexpected turn when she crosses paths with Forrest Peters, a rugged mountain guide with brooding intensity and an undeniable allure. Accompanied by Bodhi, his loyal one-eyed dog, Forrest is a stark contrast to the tech-driven world Summer's used to.
For Forrest, a former Marine scout sniper, Summer's arrival stirs up emotions he's long buried. The mountains have been his sanctuary, a refuge from a past love that forced a painful choice. He's vowed to guard his heart, especially from a city dweller who's more at home in boardrooms than the backwoods. But as they spend time together, Forrest's resolve begins to waver, challenged by the undeniable connection and the warmth Summer brings into his solitary world.
Amidst the breathtaking backdrop of the mountains, sparks fly, and emotions run high. Summer finds herself torn between the life she's always known and the unexpected feelings Forrest ignites within her. Forrest, too, must confront his fears of opening up, tempted by the genuine bond forming with Summer.
Will Summer return to her planned, predictable life, or will she dare to embrace the uncertainties of new love? And can Forrest let go of his guarded past to take a chance on a future with someone so different, yet so right?
