Winning this battle could mean losing it all...San Diego workaholic Emily Hollings doesn't eat fish, doesn't wear flannel shirts and certainly doesn't fraternise with the enemy. So why is she finding herself charmed by Rankins, Alaska - her company's next development target - and the leader of its hostile opposition, Bering James? She must be more burned-out than she thought. Her professional reserve is slipping. And she's starting to fantasise about a life beyond work...a life like Bering has here. Maybe they can put their professional differences aside and explore this...friendship. Or maybe she's just deluding herself. Because one of them has to win.
