In Alaska, she discovers the power of friendship and true love and begins to let down her guard. But is her security a facade?

Soon Nicole’s innocent beauty, taunts a sinister man, and she is caught in a web of deception and danger. Someone evil is stalking her. Someone she had trusted. Will she be saved? Or will she be hunted?

Ecerpt 1:

“This is not the time to stop girl. Let’s go!” I tried yanking the reigns. The feeling of being watched grew even stronger. Silence: only the sound of my breath, her breath, the sound …of night.
 My head darted in the direction of a snapped twig. I realized I was not alone. Many things prowl in the Alaskan wilderness. Bears, wolves. killers?
“Come on Misty, let’s go. Where the hell did they go?”
“Emily.” My pitiful voice cried out.
“Emily!” She wouldn’t leave me here alone to die.
Excerpt 2:
“Oh wow, she must be special.  I’m surprised. Not the couch in the bands apartment tonight?” I sassed.
“No, I don’t want a hotel room for that, it is nothing like that. I just want to be alone.”
“Alone? Are you sick?” I raised my eyebrow. Dylan ignored my comment.
Brad came to his rescue.  “You can crash at my place if you like tonight. You don’t have to get a hotel. I have to say though, I am concerned too. This is a few weeks now you have been avoiding the late night parties. You feeling okay?”
“Maybe meaningless sex got old.” Dylan winked at me to let me know he had been listening to our little talk in Seward.
Dylan observed the drinks on the tray. “Hey you didn’t get one for yourself. Let me buy one for you and Brad.”
I put down my tray for a moment and we raised our glasses.
“To meaningful sex,” Dylan toasted, winking at me.
“To meaningful sex.” I smiled and shook my head as we clanged our glasses together and downed the shot…
…I glanced over at the bar hoping Dylan wouldn’t notice I was looking at him. Just then he turned around and our eyes met. I quickly jerked my head away and began walking away rapidly, only to smash into an unsuspecting customer--spilling his drink all over him. I apologized telling him I would get him a new drink and asked for forgiveness over and over, bowing my head in shame.
Damn. I lifted my eyes to see the two of them at the bar, chuckling in my direction. They had witnessed my collision. Feeling utterly ridiculous, I shrugged. Retreating over to Emily’s section, I begged her to go to the bar for me to get my order. I couldn’t face them yet.
“You can’t avoid them forever.” She smiled.
“Em,You have no idea. They saw me slam right into that guy. I will never hear the end of it. I just want to give it time so they will forget about it.”
“So you were trying to look at Dylan without being noticed and you crashed into some poor helpless guy and spilled alcohol all over him?” She started laughing too.“You are so funny Nicole, of all the guys that come in here, why are you interested in the one guy who you know is a heartbreaker. When I told you, you need to meet someone, I meant someone who at least pretends to be a decent guy. What is wrong with you?” She shook her head. “It is cute though. I don’t think I have ever seen you act like this, even with Ronald. Poor unsuspecting guy, soaking wet ‘cause you have a crush on someone. Look at you, you’re beet red!”
“Stop! Are you going to get the drinks or not?”
“I don’t know, I think it would be fun watching you have to talk to them, look they are still looking this way smiling at you.”
“Em, please.”

“Of course I will,I’m just giving you a hard time.” She smiled.
