The first time I met Kalina Lawson, she nearly passed out. Being a firefighter, I couldn’t just walk back to my cabin. I stayed with her until I knew she was all right. But her warm and friendly company is refreshing, and I quickly become enamored with the stunning cabin manager. When danger and threats start kicking up around Kalina, my quick fishing trip with the guys turns into a mission to keep her safe.

I thought River Voss, the hot renter in the cabin next door, was just an extra work bonus. Living in the middle of the woods wasn’t always my dream. But the second I got the opportunity to run Tree Haven Cabin Rentals, I jumped on it. I couldn’t get away from the negativity of my hometown fast enough. At least I thought I was leaving it behind. With an enemy upping his game against me, my peaceful life in the woods is slipping out of my hands. And that hot new renter becomes the protective force I’ve never had.

Now I need River not only to help me save this business, but to save me too.
