From New York Times bestselling authors Linda Howard and Linda Jones, danger unites two guarded hearts as they struggle for survival…
Sela Gordon, shy owner of a Tennessee general store, prefers solitude. If anyone can chip away at her protective shell it’s the handsome, mysterious, ex-military man who’s been hiding for two years in the wilds of Cove Mountain. But when he warns her that a catastrophic solar storm with the capability of taking down the power grids is approaching, Sela must come out of her shell and be the leader Wears Valley needs.
Living in self-imposed exile, military veteran Ben Jernigan has lost interest in living with society and has been roughing it outside of Wears Valley. However, when he learns that a solar event is going to occur strong enough to knock out power for months, if not years; he goes to town to stock up on supplies. He has learned the hard way to look out only for number one. With a top-notch security system, he’s serious about keeping people at a distance. Yet he has to caution the undeniably sexy Sela about the impending threat—and now she’s making it too easy for him to lower his guard.
As panic spreads, Sela and Ben discover that in the dark, cut off from the outside world, there’s no more playing it safe—in life or in love
