Software CEO Call Hawkins returned to the area he once called home four years ago following the deaths of his wife and daughter in a car accident. He feels guilty that he never was there for his family as he worked sixteen hours everyday. The noise next door upsets the hermit Call who sees Charity moving in. Even more upsetting to Call is that he finds he wants sex for the first time since the tragedy though he only desires it with his new neighbor Charity. As their squabbling relationship turns to love, someone tries to kill her though she knows not why or whom. Call risks his life to keep her safe, but refuses to accept the fact that he loves Charity.

MIDNIGHT SUN is an exciting romantic suspense starring two delightful lead protagonists. The courageous Charity hooks the reader who has thought of doing the same thing she did, while the audience also feels empathy towards Call. Though the attempts on the heroine's life adds suspense and a direct link to the past, it seems unnecessary as the Yukon frontier and the previous deaths of his family provide powerful cover for a deep tale that is superb when the plot adheres to those twin themes.
