The chemo didn’t work, neither did the experimental therapy. When Nikki Matthews learns she is dying of lung cancer and has only has six months to live, she abandons Los Angeles and flees to Shadow Mountain, Colorado…a place where she always wanted to live…a place where she can die in peace. Despite her intentions of no friends and no attachments, she meets Michael de Roumare. Half French and half Arapaho, the residents of Shadow Mountain treat Michael with hatred and contempt. Nikki is not sure why and try as she might, she cannot deny her growing attraction to the handsome young man.
Michael has known only hell the past year, falsely accused of rape and disfiguring a young woman, the jury found him not guilty but he was tried and convicted in the press – a vicious, backwater half-breed. Then, to his horror, someone starts killing the women in Michael’s life and framing him for their murders. The residents of Shadow Mountain now fear a serial killer walks among them and they are certain the vicious murderer is Michael.
Nikki came here to die. She never planned on finding a righteous goal, she never planned on fighting for the truth, but she has found that with Michael and perhaps…just perhaps…she might find something more in the short time she has…as long as the killer doesn’t reach her first.
