Driven by a shocking betrayal, drop-dead gorgeous Elizabeth Cain fled her Colorado home for the remote Alaska mountains three years ago. Between working as a doctor for a small community and volunteering on weekend ski patrols, Elizabeth has succeeded in keeping everyone at arm’s length. And she’s determined to keep it that way.
For hockey player Brett Barringer, it’s love at first sight. Brett pursues Elizabeth with the same intensity and grit he brings to the ice. The chemistry he senses between them is overwhelming - and irresistible.
But everything about Brett reminds Elizabeth of her past, the past she’s worked so hard to escape. And as her feelings for him grow, so does the pain that she hasn’t ever been able to leave behind.
When the circumstances she tried to escape catch up with her, Elizabeth must deal with the trauma of her past – or risk losing a lifetime kind of love.
Charlotte “Charlie” Chase appears to have everything: a lucrative marketing career, a handsome fiancé, a mansion in Houston. But a chance encounter with the mysterious, and alluring, Paxton Crown (owner of L.O.V.E. enterprises) at a pole dancing studio, is forcing her to admit that she’s disillusioned with her stellar-but-soulless job and frigid fiancé. The world of pole dancing pulls Charlie in, and the passionate, sultry environment has her questioning her life’s direction. Taking a leave from her executive position, Charlie becomes immersed in a world of independence, unbending friendships, and sensual power. The studio and the thrilling knowledge of an upcoming competition become the only bright spots in her conventionally basic life.
Paxton is crass and unapproachable, and despite the delicious way her body responds to his presence, Paxton has made it clear he’s not interested in an emotional attachment. As Charlie and Paxton work more closely together, Charlie finds herself caught between his vulgarity and his warmth. Wanting desperately to discover what has caused him to close himself off from falling in love, she pushes him to open up. As layers of a dark past are revealed, Paxton closes himself off further from Charlotte, preventing him from seeing how sensuous, courageous, and strong Charlie really is...And how this could be the love they both need, in order to live a life of not so basic things.
