Emotionally wounded with a battered and bruised self-confidence, Jolie Mossman is on the run from her life and the turbulent relationship she has been in for over a decade. She never fit into his high society world, and he never stopped ridiculing her because of it. She is finished with love, tired of jumping through hoops, and she doesn't trust men. With her hopes and dreams of a marriage and family slowly disappearing, she packs her truck, drives north, and stumbles onto an abandoned cabin. It turns out that the cabin is not quite so abandoned after all, and the man she meets deep in the Michigan woods offers Jolie another chance to find love if she can overcome her vulnerabilities and learn to trust a man once more.
Riley Johnson is a widower from a long, loveless marriage. When he sees smoke coming from the chimney of his boyhood cabin, he is irritated. He does not appreciate trespassers. Rather than call the authorities and going through the process of filing legal complaints that achieve nothing, he decides to evict the man himself. What he discovers is a beautiful woman sleeping in his bed, wrapped in his flannel shirt. As soon as he lays his eyes on Jolie, he is infatuated with her. Unknowingly, she walks into his heart, and changes his whole world with every word she speaks. Convincing her that love at first sight can be a real and genuine occurrence might turn out to be the toughest challenge Riley has ever encountered.
