Dylan Maxwell is a busy man. His no-nonsense approach to life and business keeps him balanced – and alone. His life is bland – devoid of any kind of sweetness or light.
An unexpected business trip close to Christmas, however, brings three people into his life he never expected. 
An oversharing teenager.
A lisping little angel.
A sexy, unassuming woman unlike any he has ever met. Her bossy attitude challenges him, while her green eyes melt the frost around his heart.
They draw out something in him that he has never experienced.
Are they the Christmas miracles he needs – or will he walk away from the sweetest gift he has ever been offered? 

Dylan is a businessman. He is highly successful and has had no room in his life for love. But this holiday season his life will get a nudge in the direction he is not expecting.

Dylan is Mr. Snooty. He expects to be waited on hand and foot. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word no. He is a class a ath-hole. As he soon will learn. When business brings him to the Sleepy Moose Inn, his world will be turned upside down.

Alex is a single mother of two. She works hard to take care of her daughter and her best friends son. Both lost a parent…Both need her. Her world is slowly crumbling as her father-n-law has put the only home they know, The Sleepy Moose Inn up for sale. In a wheelchair and no longer able to take on the responsibility of the Inn, he is behind on payments, mortgaged to the hilt and has no other choice. Once the sale goes through Alex and her children would be homeless. But that is not what is important right now. Right now she needs to make nice with the snooty ath-hole who is trying to buy the place.

Dylan is in for a surprise when he meets Alex and her children. Suddenly this trip turns into more. He begins to really appreciate the little things in life. Things begin to have earning, but as feelings grow he may wind up hurting everyone in the process. Especially his little owl. Can Dylan figure out how to open up to love? Or will he blow it with his cold attitude?
