Cajun artist Nicole Dubois's life is turned upside down by a simple fax. Life has been straight and simple for her and she's planning a June wedding with New Orleans psychiatrist, Ansel Bernard. Then her grand-father leaves her valuable shore frontage in Nova Scotia.
A stipulation in the will's codicil forces her to travel alone into Canada's frozen winter clime. But her grandfather's lawyer Craig McKeen is determined to warm things up for her. She's torn between her promises to Ansel and her new found attraction to the attorney.
When a blizzard traps Nicole and Craig in a hunter's cabin, they realize that love bloomed between them despite the blast of winter outside the cabin walls. But Craig's former girlfriend, Amanda Wilson, has other plans for him and plots to send Southern girl Nicole back where she came from. Now Nicole must decide who’s lying about the codicil, Craig or Amanda… and what to do about fiancé, Ansel.
