It's been five years since Sierra Cleary was kidnapped and raped at Silvercap Mountain by a madman. She'd lost everything—her boyfriend, best friend, and her trust. Moving to a new town in the U.P. where earth and sky collides, Sierra takes risks every day of the year with her aunt and uncle’s adventure company. Whether it be with snowshoe tours in the winter, kayak trips in the summer, or as a volunteer member of the local search and rescue team, Sierra’s the best tour guide around. But outside of work, she refuses to risk anything for anyone... until her college sweetheart bursts back into her life.
As the executive assistant arranging corporate getaways for a major outfitting corporation in Minneapolis, Alex Price loves every minute of his life. He even volunteers for the Minnesota search and rescue on his days off. But when his boss suggests a testing trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Alex's past rushes back to haunt him. He hadn't been back to the Upper Peninsula since the Sierra Cleary, the love of his life, was kidnapped. Little did he know he'd have to face his demons--and his past love--head-on when he booked a week with Merritt Adventurers.
The last person Sierra expected to show up for a week-long kayaking adventure was Alex Price. After he’d broken her heart, Sierra had rationalized their relationship as nothing but a first crush. But when Alex returns as a rugged man rather than the college boy she once knew, intense emotions and desire came crashing back like a deadly Lake Superior wave. But she’s changed. Determined to guard her heart, Sierra shuts off her emotions and focuses on leading a group of executives on the kayak trip of a lifetime.
After a sudden fog separates their group, Sierra and Alex find themselves engaged in a game of cat and mouse when they witness a man pushing a woman 200 feet over Lover's Leap to the raging waters below. Can Sierra and Alex put their past aside to battle the wilds of Lake Superior to escape the woman's killer?
