Café-owner Courtney has one Christmas wish: to get a little alone time with the grumpy but sexy Marcus. Unfortunately, he seems to be going out of his way to avoid her. The only glimmer of hope she has is that he won’t let any other man get near her.
Hybrid Marcus is conflicted. Every part of him is calling for him to be with the doe-eyed woman, but being with a human goes against everything he has vowed to fight. After all, humans were the ones that imprisoned his people and experimented on them.
When the pair are stranded together because of a storm, their mutual attraction threatens to explode, but the real threat is a deadly and cunning beast stalking them in the snow.
Marcus is forced to decide what’s more important, defending his people’s honor or protecting his own chance at happiness.
