After a painful breakup, Jackson "Jax" Chamberlain, pianist and composer, takes a solo trip to the mountains of Colorado for a refreshing change of scenery. Mason Lake, a ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park, volunteers to staff a secluded patrol cabin through an oncoming snowstorm, partly to escape his sometime lover's demands for a more serious relationship. An ill-advised hike and an animal attack
bring Jax and Mason together, allowing them to wait out the storm and explore a heated passion.
Their bliss ends, however, with the arrival of an unexpected stranger, a bullet, and Mason's lover. Will the men recover from such devastating wounds to find each other again?
