Annie Henderson navigated each dip and curve on Highway 221 with the utmost caution. The low-lying clouds around Grandfather Mountain unnerved her. Before she knew it, she could end up in the middle of one and unable to see past the hood of her car.

One kiss from Rick could melt her like ice cream on a hot day. Two had made her do something she’d never done before.
