In 1959, Prudhoe Bonner lives with life and death situations all the time. The Anchorage-based trauma nurse is one of the only women in the new state of Alaska trained to handle airlifts, and she plays as hard as she works. Prudhoe has a catch-and-release approach to men. They're fun to toy with, but her father proved to her that men really can't be trusted. Then Braedon Clarkson steps in and saves her--literally--when he takes the controls of their plane after the pilot dies in the middle of a storm. Braedon's heroism catches the attention of everyone in Anchorage, but his own attention is focused on the petite, dark beauty who seems to calmly handle everything life hands her. Braedon was a different kind of man, one who seems to genuinely respect and support Prudhoe. But would she give him--and the faith that sustains him--a chance?
