Bliss Sherman comes to Cape Destiny, a town on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, with her fledgling engineering company, Sherman Engineering, to undertake the monumental task of relocating the Cape Destiny lighthouse further inland before it is swallowed by the Atlantic Ocean.
However, Bliss faces her greatest challenge when she falls in love with the handsome, mysterious descendant of the lighthouse keepers, Parker Swain, who is vehemently opposed to the lighthouse's relocation.
When the move site is vandalized, Bliss begins to wonder if the curse that is rumored to be attached to the lighthouse may be true. When she is attacked and all the clues point to Parker, she begins to question her judgment and her trust for Parker. As a hurricane bears down on Cape Destiny, Bliss finds herself trapped inside the lighthouse with Parker, who may be trying to kill her.
