Family obligations have left Titus Standish stuck in Harkness. While his younger siblings went off into the world, he stayed, working the farm and running the local search and rescue. He was there when Lacey fell to her death and blames himself. He dreads the day another mission takes him up there again. But when Ocean’s mother calls, concerned that her daughter is wandering the mountain, he leaps into action.
Ocean is thrilled to be found…until she sees her savior. She’s known Titus Standish all her life, and has loved him almost that long. But at four years his junior, she was just a kid with a crush. When Titus finds her, he’s determined to march her back down the mountain to safety. But Ocean has other plans; she’ll be damned if she’ll give up this trek. Yet all trails seem to lead to one place…straight into Titus’s arms.
Return to her ten-year reunion as a lowly traffic manager? No way. Izzy Gordon is determined to become a filmmaker by creating a documentary about the gangster history of an old lodge. But her parents own the property and want to sell – and the lodge owners are fighting to stay open. So Izzy decides not to tell anyone who she really is.
Gib Murphy, globe-trotting photojournalist, is home recovering from an injury he got on a deadly assignment in Afghanistan. All he wants is some peace. Instead, he’s landed in the middle of his grandparents’ battle to keep the lodge they’ve run for forty years.
And then he meets Izzy – and it’s lights, camera, action! But when he discovers her real identity, will their blockbuster beginning become a box-office flop?
