Sue Ann Simpkins is struggling to put her life back together following a devastating betrayal, and a weekend retreat to a remote cabin seems like the perfect early Christmas gift to herself. Until her old friend, Adam, shows up, claiming he rented the same cabin, and looking far too good in a pair of blue jeans for her peace of mind. And when they get snowed in together and unexpected passion begins to spark, the long winter’s night turns out far more naughty than nice. Afterward, though, Sue Ann insists they forget the whole thing ever happened. She knows Adam is keeping a big secret from her, and she needs an untrustworthy man in her life like she needs a lump of coal in her stocking. Christmastime has turned Adam Becker into a real Scrooge. Not only have family plans left him alone for the holidays, but he’s suffering strange new emotions for his lifelong friend, Sue Ann. Add to that being roped into playing a reindeer for shoppers at the local department store and then being cajoled into a Santa suit, as well, and Adam’s ready to hop the nearest sleigh out of town. But when the woman he’s falling for, along with a little girl’s Christmas wish, finally begin to make his season bright, can he convince Sue Ann to look past his faults and admit what she really wants for Christmas?
