In a moment of anguish, Duncan Mahoney impulsively buys a rundown lodge in Alaska, on Cotton Grass Lake. With his business savvy, he figures he can turn it around quickly, make a profit, and get out, wallet intact. But the old owner won’t leave, the hired man is a drunk, and the staff is an abandoned single mother. Cargo pilot Hanna Reed thinks the city slicker will leave quickly and good riddance. She traded the Air Force and a bad marriage for a quiet life, good friends, and the pleasure of the open sky. Duncan is a distraction she doesn’t need, but he is so sexy she decides to enjoy him while he’s still around. As the season unfolds, Duncan and Hannah find themselves growing closer emotionally as well as physically. The magic of Cotton Grass Lake may heal broken hearts, but is it enough to keep them from breaking again?
