Tania Paget bitterly resented Frenchman Claude Girard, who had survived an tragic mountaineering accident, while her brother, James, had not. Then, astonishingly, Claude asked for her co-operation on a book about the two men's mountaineering exploits. Tania finally agreed, but it meant living in the family chateau in the Pyrenees for six months. As she got to know Claude, Tania begins to understand the male fascination with mountains. When Claude's own life was in danger, she discovered the truth about love as well.
