After his best-selling account of rescuing polar bear cubs while working on an Arctic oil rig, Magnus Gray has hit a career slump. To add insult to injury, his editor has assigned him to a remote, dusty town called Sagebrush Flats to write about the local zoo's latest resident, a fuzzy polar-bear cub. Magnus has a soft spot for the bear but wants to flee the town - until one Sagebrush resident has him questioning everything.
June Winters is a people person - it's why she takes delight in her tea shop, the local hitching post, and why she puts up with the standoffish newcomer, Magnus. They butt heads more often than mountain sheep. But Magnus has a steadfast passion that June can't resist...and the two of them need each other more than they know. Thankfully, there's no shortage of lively inhabitants at the zoo to convince June and Magnus that opposites really do attract.
