Turning twenty should be cause for celebration, but for Brinn Hathaway—kidnap survivor turned rookie cop—all she wants is to be alone. At least that's the plan when she hikes into the North Georgia High Country, desperately in need of respite from the complexities of relationships in the so called "civilized" world. With two guys taking up so much space in her head—and her heart—Brinn finds the call of the wild and the company of her trusty canine partner, Eliot, a balm to her soul. But going back to the cabin she spent eight long winters in may not be exactly the restful haven she hoped for.
When Brinn stumbles upon a young woman trapped in a desperate situation, she can't help but get involved. Leaving the girl in the hands of two drug dealing brothers isn't what a good cop would do—no matter the risk. With no time to call for back-up, Brinn is forced to take on the ruthless duo alone. But after a failed rescue attempt, she soon finds herself in way over her head with no help in sight.
