Kelly has survived many tragedies, till she is tested again, but as luck would have it, she finds a wounded U.S. Marshal on her doorstep. He brings with him a past and his own personal demons. Surviving the winter storm will either break them or bring them together, but trusting him with her heart is not as easy. Mason has known many women, but Kelly shows strength and courage when he knows she is scared. Maybe he can break down her walls and teach her to love him just as he is . . . as a simple man . . . not a half-breed man of the law. Many changes will happen when the storm hits; it's up to these two to survive it together or alone.
