Fashion buyer Shea Walker had a fast track lifestyle until a car accident sidelines her to a painful recovery. Seeking quiet for the holidays, Shea returns to the
snowy mountains where she grew up to make peace with her past and spend time
with her estranged family. She never expected J.C. Royce--now a hockey
star--would return to their hometown, too. Determined to avoid that particular
sexy mistake, she's caught off guard when her first night in town brings them
face to face.
Seeing Shea practically fall at his feet is gratifying, until J.C. realizes his proud former friend, who he once thought would become a whole lot more, is truly hurt--and in more ways than she lets on. Lucky for Shea, he's got a big house just sitting empty and a tree ready to decorate, as she is in no shape to stay by herself. With his bad boy arrogance down to an art form after eight years in the NHL, J.C. is more than a match for feisty Shea. Especially when it comes to her outrageous claim that there was never any chemistry between them...
But when it comes to convincing her to stick around town until the New Year, he just might need a Christmas miracle.
