"Go to Destiny. There's something waiting there for you."
Shane Dalton's new life is waiting in Miami, complete with fast cars and faster women. But first, he's heeding his father's dying words and stopping off in Destiny, Ohio. The detour wasn't supposed to include a busted pickup and a blizzard. But Candice Sheridan, the cute redhead who reluctantly offers shelter, could prove a pleasant diversion. Trouble is, she thinks Shane's bad news. And he's pretty sure she's right . . .
Candice had her trust broken once before. Yet something about Shane won't let her stay away. By Christmas, he'll be gone. Until then, she's itching to stop playing nice and safe . . . and try being a little naughty for once.
As their holiday romance heats up, Shane uncovers a shattering secret and Candice is preparing to face heartache once again. But there's no better place than Destiny-especially at Christmastime-for two lost souls to find the gift of sweet, surprising love . . .
