Evan Asher about this book: Nicole Ross's car dies on her way to Pine View, a secluded forest retreat owned by her cousin, leaving her stranded in unfamiliar territory. Out of the twilight a man appears. He's unfriendly and keeps to the shadows of the trees. Though he is gruff, as they talk Nicole's initial fear turns to fascination with the reclusive stranger. When she reaches her destination, she learns from her coworkers his name is Finn Erickson and she finds out he is rumored to be unstable, possibly even dangerous. She doesn't want to believe the cruel gossip and she doesn't understand why they say he's freakish and ugly. Though she only saw him in the gloom of approaching night, she'd thought he was possibly the handsomest man she'd ever seen. She's determined to find out more about their mysterious neighbor.
Finn Erickson chose a solitary existence after the car crash that robbed him of his family and disfigured his face. He thought he could handle being lonely if it meant avoiding the crushing heartache of loss. Then Nicole, with her sweet eyes and soft smile, invades his isolation, reaches past his defenses, and touches his wounded soul. But he may not be ready for the love she offers.
