In the churning water, she felt her future slipping away…
Attending a corporate retreat at a remote resort in Alaska, Lisa Vaughn is plunged into the frigid rapids of the Wild River. Swept away, battered and alone, she has been left for dead.

Embarking on a heroic search that takes him miles down river, he saves Lisa from the deadly water, but not before they’ve been swept deep into the wilderness. Far from civilization, the former lovers must put aside their hurt feelings and find the will to survive. There’s a killer on the loose and, for now, they must measure their future together in days instead of years.
