When a massive fire destroys lawman Cooper Sullivan’s home and possessions, he is left with nothing but the clothes on his back. He needs to start over, so he moves in with his brother in Florida and finds work as a fishing guide. One summer day, one of Cooper’s clients–a woman named Jolie Gentry–asks him to take her deep into the swamps for an adventure. As they explore areas that have never been seen before by humans, they develop an unspoken understanding about each other. Against all odds, love begins to blossom between them…but then disaster strikes again, tearing them apart. Ten years later fate brings them back together; can their love survive this second chance?
