But her plans take an unexpected turn when she crosses paths with rugged mountain guide and lodge manager Forrest Peters and his loyal one-eyed dog, Bodhi. His world of family values and nature 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. And as they spend time together, 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 his heart, even if it's to someone who may not belong in his world.
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?
