After going through a terrible breakup with an abusive ex named Todd, Bailey has serious confidence issues. When she is saved from an attempted robbery by three handsome men, Stephen, Riley, and Felipe, however, events are set in motion that will change how she feels about herself…and change her entire life forever.
She befriends her three rescuers and is surprised to learn that they are head over heels in love with her. Skeptical of their intentions, she initially rejects their advances, although she still wants to remain friends. Weeks pass and her resistance to the idea of being with them begins to fade. They are such gentlemen and treat her like she has always wanted. When they hold a charity event for her brother, Daniel, who has cancer, she finally realizes that they truly love her and are nothing like her ex. Despite her lingering fear of getting her heart broken, she gives herself to them.
The second half of the book deals with Bailey’s other fear—her family’s acceptance of her new lifestyle. She wrestles with her affection, at which point Riley, Stephen, and Felipe assure her that they want nothing more than for her to be happy. They encourage her to decide who she wants to be with.
To help her decide, each of them treats her to a weekend getaway. Riley takes her to New York City, Felipe takes her camping in the West Cliffs, and Stephen takes her bungee jumping.
The story concludes with her taking a literal and symbolic leap. As she jumps from the bungee tower, she chooses to face her fear and be with all three of them rather than just one and to embrace her happily ever after.
After going through a terrible breakup, Bailey is convinced that no man will ever want her. When she makes a wish to find love, however, everything changes. She meets three smoking-hot guys who want to show her just how desirable she is. She has to decide…will she run away from their affection or go for everything she wants?

A pre-requisite to reading this book should be to first read “The Naked Society” by Vance Packard, which was published in 1964. The state of our society was in fact much worse than Vance Packard portrayed, and in every way, should be more appropriately described as “The Torn Society.” Even five years before the publication of Vance Packard’s book, a turn in the way that people in our society were treated deviated from a normal respect of human rights into the proliferation of a philosophy to make humans available for the exploitation of other humans, namely the so called “upper crust” of society. The tools for achieving this would be modern technology. Our society cannot have peace because it is in conflict with itself, torn by tyranny from within. It is our society, The American Society, The Torn Society. To come to grips with this, the people and leaders of this society need to see what they have become. Fortunately, the angels in heaven saw that the demise of the human race would transpire if The Torn Society would be allowed to run its course. So they sent something to correct that course – their eyes.

An arrogant stranger with a mysterious past. An innocent girl desperate to heal her broken family. Thrown together by fate, they find themselves fighting a harsh Alaskan winter. Will they ignore their blistering sexual chemistry or will they give in under the skies of an Alaska Night?
Jules Harper knows that no one comes to Bright Bay in the middle of winter. But one January morning, Night Calloway proves her wrong, riding into the wild woods, ready to break hearts with his chiseled body and grass green eyes. He’s there to make fast money and get away from the dark past that’s been chasing him in the lower 48. If he warms the bed of every pretty girl in town while he does it, all the better. He’s scored logging work with the help of the town’s golden boy and he plans on sweating hard, pocketing the cash and moving on.
Then he sees her.
A sweet-faced local girl raising her little sister, begging her alcoholic father to pick life over death, forced to grow up before her time—the first real emotion Night has felt in years is to protect Jules. But she’s heard the rumors. He’s in town to steal the jobs, and the women. Yet somehow, as soon as he locks his tattooed arms around her, she’s ready to stay in them forever. She doesn’t care that she has no idea who he was before he roared into Alaska.
Just as she falls hard, her world is consumed with dangerous accusations, breathless calls and nightly disappearances. Jules wants to jump to Night’s defense, but when he’s accused of terrible crimes, she doesn’t know if Bright Bay is plotting to bring an outsider down or if she’s really in bed with the enemy. Tangled in a web of lust and law-breaking, Jules knows what her real fear is: When winter ends, will Night disappear with it?
