Forty-year-old Samantha Nicholson has never had much interest in falling in love. Her troubled childhood taught her that the only person she can rely on is herself.
She’s done well for herself, working her way up through the ranks to manage the second largest department store in the Pacific Northwest. She has a good job, friends, and a little dreamhouse with her very own garden.
Everything would be perfect if she could just get through the busy Christmas shopping season and find the perfect Santa to work at the store. It turns out the perfect Santa is also the perfect man for her.
Recently retired after twenty-five years in the Navy, Dominick Romano is taking some time off as he plans his next move. When his sister asks him to help her employment agency by applying for a Santa job, Dom figures it will be an easy way to pass the time.
Little does he know he’s about to meet the woman he’s been looking for his whole life. She claims that she hates Christmas, but he’s going to make it his mission to make Sammie fall in love with Christmas. If he has any luck, she’ll also fall in love with Santa himself.
