Ambra Vinter is a reporter for one of the county's biggest evening newspapers. She is clever, cocky and idealistic. She has been sent to cover a story in the cold and snowy eternal darkness that is Kiruna in December. Haunted by a past threatening to catch up with her she quickly discovers that the easy job nobody wanted to take has hidden depths.
Tom Lexington is a security expert and elite soldier who has come back from captivity and torture in Tchad. Traumatized by his experiences, Tom is hiding out in a friend's luxury cabin in the wintry woods. He is also in Kiruna to win back the woman he loves.
The last thing Tom needs is an arrogant big city reporter to complicate matters and the furthest thing from Ambra's mind is getting mixed up with a gruff, chauvinistic caveman like Tom . . .
But like two magnets, they are inexorably drawn to one another . . . Will what happens north of the Arctic Circle stay north of the Arctic Circle?
