After her space ship crash lands on an alien planet, Stella finds shelter in a nearby cave that is much more than it appears. But when a hidden door closes, she's trapped inside... and she isn't alone. Monsters lurk in the shadows and another survivor, mysterious and beastly, takes her under his protection. He promises to keep her body safe, but her heart is another matter.
Arest knows nothing but blood and death. Yet, when he sees Stella, his only thought is to keep her from harm. Enemies lurk in every corner, and as they travel deeper into the bowels of the mountain, it becomes clear that they are both in danger from something worse than the simple creatures that attack from the shadows.
The closer that Stella and Arest get to the heart of the mountain maze, the deadlier the threats grow. And with every step, their passion deepens, igniting in both of them an emotion neither thought possible. But Arest's hazy past is an ever-present threat, and even if they make it off the mountain there may be no way to stay together and stay safe from powerful enemies.
Stella may be snowed in with an alien beast, but she soon finds that he is the monster that she wants at her side, and she'll do anything to keep him there.
