To escape her high pressure professional job as a physician, Juliet Armstrong books a kayak holiday in the pristine waters of Desolation Sound in British Columbia. Her friend Marigold urges her to find a delicious man on the holiday. Juli claims she is not interested; however, when injuries disable the other kayakers she finds herself abandoned with Rich Thompson, doctor for Cortes Island and alternate guide. Thus begins their tumultuous, sexually-charged relationship. Their trip is filled with exquisite beauty and exciting, even life-threatening, events that force them together. On a remote island accessible through a reversing tidal waterfall, sleeping under the stars and a meteor shower, Juli relaxes in the calm beauty. Later that same night, frightened by the howls of wolves, she impulsively leaps into Rich's sleeping bag, finding a beauty and danger of another kind. Passion and desire war with the everyday realities of the very different life styles of an urban versus a rural doctor. Valiantly Juli and Rich listen to each other, empathize over past traumas, and support one another in saving lives. Can these two powerful people develop their searing sexual attraction into a committed workable relationship?show more
