Environmentalist and lawyer, Isabelle Barnes is drawn to Zack’s appeal the first time they bumped into each other. For over a week that they’ve been together, their professional relationship becomes serious and personal. And worse, she’s fallen in love with him. But no matter how fun, hot and satisfying their relationship is, she must end it. Zack is a man she’s promised not to tangle with, a man like her father.

He not only wants to protect Isabelle, he wants to keep her to himself. But she doesn’t want him to stay. She reasons that they're different and the relationship will not last. At the height of their argument, Zack unknowingly lowers his guard. Now they're in danger. He can see a man with a gun, glinting from the reflective light of the sun. Despite his skates slipping on ice, he's able to guide Isabelle behind the makeshift manger, but can he keep her alive until help arrives?
