Every man needs a hero to catch him when he falls, but does that still apply when he's falling in love? When Cal Somers loses his entire family to a drunk driver, he uproots his life and moves into the house he has inherited in the Lake District. When he falls—literally—into the arms of Ford Collister, the gorgeous but moody owner of a mountain equipment shop, Cal is confused and uncertain about his attraction. Will shy, submissive Cal find the courage to respond to Ford's dominant advances? As an emergency paramedic and member of the local mountain rescue team, Ford is used to taking command and dealing with every situation the hills can throw at him. Cal, however, is a whole new challenge, igniting feelings that Ford feared he would never experience again. Tragedy in his past makes him cautious and he moves slowly, the pain of history giving an edge to his growing feelings.When Cal's life is threatened, the fear of losing him brings all Ford's possessive tendencies to the surface and, though Cal resists, he secretly loves Ford's assertive behaviour. Only one thing is certain—when they finally take that leap of faith and overcome the tragedy of the past, sparks will fly!
