Dalton Dawson is reeling on the anniversary of an event that changed his life forever. All he wants to do is hide from his past for a few days, but in walks trouble in the form of a timid human who has his heart thawing for the first time in years.

Dalton makes her feel safe and empowered, and it’s been a long time since her future looked so bright.
