Micah, unemployed for some time, gets hired as the Marketing Coordinator for a retirement home. The night before her first day on the job, it begins to snow, and by the time she gets up early the next morning there are six inches on the ground. Uncomfortable driving in the stuff, she does it anyway. She can’t miss her first day of work! Even though she drives slower than a slug, her car slides into a ditch and she canʼt get out. Dane, a modern day knight in shining armor, comes to her rescue, and then offers her a ride to work. He tells her he goes there every morning to visit his grandfather, and not wanting to be late, she accepts.
The employee manual states, and her boss emphasizes, that it is against company policy to fraternize with residents and their family members. Micah knows she could lose her job, but with her car in the shop for a month, no credit card and no bus service from her rural home, there is no way for her to get to and from work without a long, cold walk—or a ride with Dane.
Complicating matters even further, Micah, a kind-hearted animal lover, agrees to take care of the grandfatherʼs horse As they spend more and more time together, Micah finds herself torn between her growing attraction for Dane and a desperate need to keep her job.
