Kristen Mathews is a snarky self-sufficient woman who lives alone on the top of a mountain with her faithful dog as her only companion. She changes her own oil, runs a backhoe and designs jewelry. Kristen goes into town occasionally to see her sister and mail packages, she's perfectly happy with those tiny bits of socialization.
Until a forest fire forces her to evacuate. Coming down the mountain casts her into the town problems and sucks her into all the chaos of opening an art gallery. Her an art gallery owner? Preposterous... but true.
Police officer Nolan Thompson is tasked with the evacuation of the few residents on the mountain. Getting this crazy but beautiful jewelry designer out of harm's way is not the easiest thing he's ever done. He manages to get her to safety, but can't resist driving by to make sure she doesn't need some help adjusting to town life. When he gets caught in her gallery plans, he knows his life may never be the same.
Nolan turned his back on his talent forever when his sister was murdered. Caught back up in the art world, he's torn between creating and the curse his art seems to have on those he loves.
When Nolan and Kristen act on their attraction, the world may never be the same. But can he keep her safe from the curse that seems to hang over him?
She's not the least bit interested in some silly idea of a curse.
Join in the fun as the recluse teaches the man what life and love is all about.
