Lia Riley takes her emotionally charged storytelling global in this debut of a sizzling New Adult series.Auden Woods is done being the "quiet" sister. Determined to step out of the shadow of her older sister and from the crippling asthma that has dictated her life, she decides to backpack alone through Patagonia's famous Torres del Paine. In a remote valley the weather turns foul, and the only shelter for miles is in a young Scottish mountaineer's tent. Rhys MacAskill is at the end of his rope. The last thing he wants is to become captivated by the American brunette seeking shelter. Over the next week, Auden finds herself falling for the reckless, seductive and self-destructive Rhys, but can she stop him from unraveling when he's forced to confront demons from his past?
After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, Lia Riley traveled the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence, and a terrible sense of direction. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, and daydreams about as-of-yet unwritten books. She and her family live mostly in Northern California.
