Nolan Ducayne plays ice hockey for the Rangers and is the best defender in the league. Candice Levine is an Olympic gold medallist figure skater. They’re fiercely attracted to each other. There’s just one little problem. They’re at war over the pond ice that lies on the boundary between their properties.
Christmas has always been lonely for Candice but this year she plans to embrace the season. She’s even going to get a tree, which leads to a set of whole new problems with Nolan bloody Ducayne. The bane of her existence. He thinks he owns the ice. If only he wasn’t sin on skates.
When Nolan comes home and finds the ice princess trying to cut down a tree on his property, he can’t help but take advantage of the situation. It’s a pity Candy hates him, because she stirs every one of Nolan’s protective instincts. Not to mention the other things she stirs.
Hockey player versus ice skater. The battle lines are drawn. But when the pond ice breaks and Candy almost drowns in the freezing water, Nolan risks his life to save her. Hypothermic and trapped together by a blizzard, they’re forced to confront their feelings and negotiate a Christmas ceasefire. The only question is… how long will it last?
