Though she felt the attraction between them when she met him briefly in L.A., she is unprepared for the sparks that fly when she arrives in Alaska. As Lane decides whether to give in to her attraction to Dylan, her sleep is interrupted by ghostly noises and visions, and she believes that the lodge may be haunted. While seeking to unravel the mystery, Dylan and Lane’s affair heats up and begins to involve more emotions than either anticipated, and Lane also grows closer to Dylan’s mute young daughter, Emily. Intense mystery and sensual love scenes will lure readers into this novel and not let go until the final page is turned. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, Janklow & Nesbit Associates. (June)
