When a mysterious stranger arrives in Shady Trees, things go quickly awry: Clocks stop, small children insist they’ve spotted UFOs, and the prim and proper schoolteacher begins indulging in abduction fantasies. One night in quiet, bucolic Shady Trees, two children witness a startling occurrence: A giant silver figure engulfed in green light emerges from the darkness before them, picks up a dead bird, and brings it back to life. The next day at school, Miss Lise Anderson hears her students buzzing about the sighting and dismisses it as a childish rumor. Then she encounters handsome geologist, Stephen Gage. Unable to ignore the electricity coursing between them, the buttoned-up Lise seeks out the stranger.
When two precious artifacts go missing from the town museum, locals accuse Gage. Lise emerges as his only advocate. Is her attraction to him clouding her judgment? After Gage arrives at her home unexpectedly during a storm, and takes her against her will to the hills, she realizes she’s begun a risky erotic game with a man as dangerous as he is desirable.
