Suspenseful, intensely erotic and unflinching, this spine-chilling love story will haunt you long after the last page. After learning she has a terminal illness, Katherine abandons her successful advertising firm and seeks refuge in the solitude of a cabin in the wilderness. But as she hikes up to the isolated cabin, Katherine senses she is being watched. Collapsed with exhaustion on the cabin floor, she hears breathing just outside her door. A heartbeat in the night. Someone is out there. Her sudden arrival at the previously abandoned cabin has unsettled its previous inhabitant, Danny, a damaged young Vietnam veteran tormented bythe demons of his past. When these two lost souls collide, the passion that ignites between them becomes an all-consuming wildfire that threatens to destroy them both.
