Can a city surgeon dedicated to rebuilding damaged children's bodies, and a man who lives and breathes wilderness, ever build a life together that includes both their worlds?
Surgeon Emma Garrett's most haunting loss occurred the day she refused to follow wildlife photographer Gray McKenzie into the wilderness. What hurt most was knowing that she could have had her first and greatest love - all she had to do was turn her back on her dreams and take his hand.
But as sexy, desirable, and talented as Gray was, nothing could stand between Emma and her true calling – healing children.
Now widowed with a thriving Seattle practice and an eighteen-year-old son, when her son and a friend disappear during a wilderness kayaking trip, Emma is suddenly plunged into the wilderness she avoided so many years ago. She needs an expert, an outdoorsman who knows the territory. She needs Gray McKenzie - and she's determined to get him.
When Emma leaves the safety of her Seattle practice to fly north into the coastal wilderness, she finds her first love has grown more understanding, more handsome - and more than able to rekindle the passion they once shared. Together, they will journey through the wilderness she finds so frightening, desperate to find Emma's missing son.

"I love writing fiction - it's the perfect occupation for someone who can't decide what they want to be when they grow up. With each new story, I get to explore a new world." Vanessa Grant's love affair with writing fiction began during a protracted illness at the age of 12 when she decided to write a novel of her own, sitting up in bed using the typewriter she'd been given for her birthday. Not a computer, not an electric typewriter, but a then-state-of-the-art manual typewriter. The story ground to a halt on page 50 but Vanessa never forgot the excitement of bringing her own characters to life. In 1985 Vanessa's novel Pacific Disturbance was published in hardcover by Mills and Boon. She now has over 10 million books sold and has been translated into 15 languages. She also has written what one critic described as, "by far the best writing book I've ever read." Writing Romance, published by Self Counsel Press, won the Under the Covers Best Writing Book Award, and is currently in its third edition. Over the years her love of storytelling and curiosity about people led Vanessa to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, complete individual and relationship counselor training, volunteer as a peer counselor for a family life organization, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. Vanessa is also a university professor, a publisher of educational materials and eBooks, and has given workshops to writers' groups in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada. Vanessa and her husband live on Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest with their two Australian Shepherd dogs.
