Maddie welcomed the hard work of making the climb back up the slope. It warmed her body and forced her to concentrate on something besides the man ahead of her. Back there in the trees, warming her hands beneath Hagan's shirt, desire had hit her with the force of an avalanche. She'd felt his pulse beneath her fingers, and the ridged line of muscle along his abdomen and had to lock her knees to stay upright.

Along with physical desire came a feeling of profound connection to the man before her. When he'd held her so tightly after he'd first found her, she'd felt so safe. So comforted. And when she'd looked into his eyes she knew that he understood her—her fears and flaws and silly weaknesses—in a way that maybe no one else ever had. The certainty of this knowledge and her powerful physical attraction to him caught her off guard.On the heels of this came the realization that she was not alone in her response to the situation. Hagan was aroused, as well. Was it only the situation that caused this unexpected intimacy in the moonlit darkness? Or was it her he wanted?

At the top of the ridge, they stopped to rest and Hagan blew a long sharp blast on his whistle. "I hope everyone hears that and comes in," she said. "I hate to think of them out in this cold."

"They will be glad to know you are all right," he said. He hesitated, then added, "I should have never let you ski off alone that way. I knew you were unfamiliar with the area."

"It's not your fault," she protested. "I was the one who wasn't paying attention to where I was going."

"I feel responsible. When I returned to the parking lot and you were not there..." He shook his head, his expression grim. "I have never felt so sick at heart."

His evident distress moved her. She reached out and squeezed his arm. "It's okay. You found me and I'm fine." She wanted to say more, but she couldn't find words for all she was feeling. And given his penchant for avoiding emotional entanglements, maybe that was just as well. She'd come to value his friendship; no sense ruining that with deeper feelings that would only make him retreat.

He nodded and stashed the whistle in his pocket. "Let's go. The others will be waiting."

Zephyr and Bryan ran to meet them as they emerged from the trees into the parking area. "Way to go, Hagan!" Zephyr said. "Where was she?"

"I got turned around in a bunch of trees," Maddie said, trying to make light of the situation.

"Hey, Maddie! Are you all right?" Andrea clicked out of her skis and ran to meet them. She threw her arms around Maddie, almost knocking her over.

"I'm fine," Maddie said, laughing.

"We were so worried," Andrea said.

"Hagan, did you find her?" Max and Casey joined the group and Max slapped Hagan on the back.

"I was probably the last to see her, so I had a good idea where to start looking," he said.
