Sophie Summerfield Rose, an energetic and determined newspaper reporter, dreams of cracking the big story, but for the time being is relegated to writing articles about local events for a small Chicago publication, the Illinois Chronicle.
Her assignment to write about William Harrington, an arrogant, self-involved man who is poised to win his 25th 5K race, turns into an agonizing interview that lasts over two hours. What happens the next day at the race, however, sends Sophie on an adventure that takes her all the way to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
She is joined by Jack MacAlister, tough undercover FBI agent, whose mission is to keep Sophie safe. Amid great peril and deadly intrigue in the unforgiving Alaskan terrain, she and Jack form an alliance sparked with sensual attraction. Together they face a deadly enemy who will stop at nothing to keep them from unraveling the mystery of the secret Alpha Project.
Sophie not only finds the big story she’s looking for in Alaska. She becomes the story.
