Matt Stevens is finished with life. Grieving the death of his son, Matt withdraws from humanity, sequestering himself in a mountain cabin far from the reaches of anything human; anything that may remind him of the life he can no longer have. That is, until Kate Alexander arrives on his doorstep and begins to strip away the bitterness he carries in his heart.
Running from an abusive ex-husband who tried to murder her, Kate Alexander's life is turned upside down. Learning of the death of her grandmother, the only woman who ever believed in her, is almost Kate's complete undoing, especially when the devastating news comes from a man so lacking in human emotion he may as well be a robot. Yet Kate is drawn to Matt Stevens in a way she never before experienced. Could there be more to this unlikely friend of her grandmother's - something beyond the cold surface he presents to the world?
