Liam’s feelings for Frankie have never faded, but their years apart have brought complications, including a secret that could drive Frankie away. Only a Christmas miracle can help Liam convince the woman he adores to finally gamble on love.

“Ms. Hogan, there’s a gentleman waiting to see you in the reception area.”
Frankie raised her eyebrows at Vincent, her head of security, as she stepped out of the elevator from her penthouse apartment in the Bellwether Club. “I don’t have an appointment this afternoon,” she said, surprised that her protective staff members would let an unknown, non-member into her ultra-exclusive club.

She stalked through the door to see the silhouette of a man standing with his back to her as he gazed through the French doors at the snow-covered garden.
