When ER doctor Cecilia is wounded and her fiance killed in a shoot-out at the hospital, the only way she can heal her body and her heart is to spend time in her remote mountain cabin. She isolates herself, until Gavin moves to a nearby lodge. As hard as she tries to stay away, Gavin's friendship and sensuality are slowly bringing her back to life. Gavin, an FBI agent has been ordered to apprehend a fugitive in the area, but the moment he meets Cecilia, he can't pass up the chance to give her the passion she has been missing - even with a dangerous mission in hand.
