Trusting each other is the only thing that will keep them alive…
Photojournalist Lilly Carlisle is having a very bad day. She’s lost – well, not lost exactly, more like stranded far from her cabin – in the vast wilds of northern Ontario. There’s a thunderstorm rolling in, night is falling and so is the temperature, and her cell phone is as waterlogged as her canoe, not to mention the hole in it. The canoe that is, not the phone. Not that she likely could have gotten a signal anyway. And, oh, yeah, she’s just been abducted by a gun-toting mad man!
Undercover RCMP Corporal Remy Gallagher is having an even worse day. The supernova of craptastic days, in fact. The Great Lakes gun and drug smuggling ring he’s infiltrated in a cross-border sting operation has snowballed into a matter of national security for both countries. His cover’s just been blown wide open by a suspected terrorist from his past. He’s on the run in the backwoods of northern Ontario with no way to contact his partners for backup or to let them know the ante has been upped. And if that’s not enough, he also has a bullet hole in his shoulder.
When Remy first stumbles across Lilly, he doesn’t know which side she’s on, but it doesn’t take him long to figure out that she’s no smuggler or terrorist. She’s just unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But the lunatic woman doesn’t have an ounce of self-preservation! Even with his gun pointed at her, she just doesn’t know when to stop mouthing off and shut up. She’s as mule-headed and single-minded as he is, refusing to believe he’s a cop or that her life is also now in danger. And, despite the gun, she’s doing a pretty decent job of trying to kick his fevered backside into next week.
They may not like each other, but working together is what it will take for both of them to survive. Learning to put their trust – and possibly their hearts – on the line is the only way for the reluctant allies to endure the harsh wilderness and outwit the men bent on stopping them at any cost…including murder.
