As the night unfolds, the chemistry between them becomes powerful enough to devour them whole, but the secret he’s hiding could easily extinguish the flames.

When the truth is disclosed, he offers her something that could change the course of her mundane life forever. But at what cost? In the end, the cold winter wind just may blow her down a path she doesn't want to go, but escaping just may not be so easy.

She longs for the lavish lifestyle of her best friend, Suki. From the matching his and her Maserati’s she and her husband Luca roll in, to the iced-out diamond ring Suki lugs around on her ring finger; they are serious #couplegoals. Yet, their most prized possession is their five-year-old daughter, and River’s goddaughter, Noemi. Just days away from eviction, River is hit with the tragic news that both Suki and Luca were killed in a car accident, leaving her to raise Noemi as her own. There’s only one thing standing in her way, Luca’s brother, Maverick. Not only is he Noemi’s last living blood relative, he’s also the type of man River avoids.

With a pending court hearing looming over him, the stakes are higher than ever.
