Megan Thomas is running for her life. From Chicago, from the mob, from her controlling husband. She runs to the only place she ever felt at peace: a North Carolina barrier island she remembers from her childhood. Now she only wants to get lost - in someone else's life. A new identity, soothing ocean winds, and a quiet existence are all she needs.
Smyth Parker is running from life. From the business he inherited, from society, from an ex-wife scorned. His only escape is the solitude of uninhabited Portsmouth Island. He doesn't want anything else. And he sure as hell doesn't need a complication named Megan Thomas.
When Megan fears she's been found, she runs again - straight into Smyth's arms. His isolated island home might finally be her perfect escape. Or is it?
