Best dream ever… Marinda Rhinehart loathes the cold and has been scared to swim ever since she fell through the ice of Lake Huron when she was a teenager. So why is she standing with Gavin, the most handsome man she has ever seen, in a frigid icy place in a formal wedding-type ceremony, and giving up her V-card for mind-blowing sex she’s only read about in books? Except it isn't a dream… When she wakes up in her apartment in Gainesville, Florida and makes plans to go back to Michigan in the winter for her aunt’s funeral, dream guy is at the airport. She doesn’t believe he’s real and still has major trust issues after she was dumped in college by her long-term boyfriend who was on another date at the time. Gavin insists he’s not a dream and that she has really joined with him. He doesn’t tell her he must battle Ramian, a ranking leader at his home under the waves in the Granite Cliffs, to allow her to take her place with him in his homeland. And it must be her choice. Can she give up her life on land and trust her heart and life to a man she barely knows in an alien place? And can he keep her safe from Ramian’s hatred?
