Nick North hates Christmas. His heart froze solid, five years before when the only woman he ever loved said no to his Christmas Eve proposal. Nick has no need for love, happily-ever-afters, and most definitely no need for Christmas. So when community activist Noel Klaus stands in the way of Nick’s holiday plans to demolish Winter Hills and start construction on another strip mall, Nick determines that he will stop her. No matter what the cost.
Noel Klaus fights every fight worth fighting. She dropped out of B-school to become a community activist. When, just before Christmas, Noel discovers that Winter Hills, her grandmother’s retirement community, will soon face the wrecking ball, Noel springs into action. She will do everything in her power to ensure that Winter Hills remains even if it means confronting the one man she never ever wanted to see.
