Held captive by an ancient Cherokee curse, Mathias Tassel lives in virtual solitude on Eternity Mountain. An immortal shape-shifter with psychic powers, he’s learned over the years that love and immortality don’t go together. Convinced his destiny is set in stone, he keeps his heart safely under lock and key…until Ellen Mallory comes to his mountain.

A little over a year ago, Ellen’s life took a wrong turn. At the suggestion of her boss, she goes to Eternity Mountain, hoping to get her life back on track and, if she’s lucky, find some happiness again. She’s pretty sure she’s destined to live out her life alone…until fate steps in and tosses temptation in her path. It comes in the form of a tall, dark, mysterious stranger.  He rescues her from sure death when she gets lost in a blizzard.  When she wakes up naked in his arms, she surprises herself and seduces him.  Afterwards, she’s glad she did. Matt is the kind of man she’s always wanted; thoughtful, caring, attentive, gentle, funny…the list goes on and on. There’s just this one tiny little thing—at the height of passion, she keeps imagining he’s turning into a bear.  What’s that about? All she knows is it gives a whole new meaning to the term “mind-blowing sex,” and she never wants their snowbound tryst to end.  

In time, the curse comes between Matt and Ellen, but it isn’t the only thing standing in their path. There are other forces at work on Eternity Mountain. Forces which will bring them back together then tear them apart again. Can they protect the mountain and its wildlife from harm, survive the powers working against them and overcome the curse to find their destiny?
