When a trip to the great outdoors goes horribly wrong, a small-town ER nurse soon finds herself with more than she can handle.
Christian Holbrook is looking forward to a quiet, relaxing weekend of fishing with his brothers, complete with their usual jokes about his lacklustre love life. But when he discovers a mysterious cave hidden deep among the trees, the creature that lurks within changes his life forever.
Libby Grimes is an ER nurse in a small country town. Tasked with the stressful job of caring for her wheelchair-bound mother, her long days and sleepless nights are haunted by the strange disappearance of her father. She knows he wouldn’t abandon them – but all her clues led to dead-ends.
When Christian checks into her hospital, her mystery takes a new turn. His symptoms are unlike anything she’s ever seen before. His wounds heal faster than she thought possible and all her tests are inconclusive. But beyond the deep scars in his arm, Libby soon finds herself drawn to him. She feels the magnetic pull between them – and she can’t help but notice the striking familiarity that lies behind his eyes.
As their feelings grow, can Libby she help Christian overcome the darkness forming inside him? Or will his new powers be her end?
