Their work is exciting, dangerous and full of risk and that’s just the way they like it. Stefania has never run from a good challenge, but the hardest one she’s ever faced is getting her partner to lighten up and partake in a little holiday cheer.
Marcus has no use for the holidays. They only remind him of what he’s never truly had; a caring environment with a loving mother and father. Marcus’ father left when he was born, and his mother drowned her sorrows in alcohol. When she dies suddenly, Marcus is left an orphan with no next of kin. Bounced around from family to family, he’s had a hard time believing in happy endings. His growing attraction to Stefania gives him hope for the future, but first he must loosen the grip of his past.

Stefania drops everything and rushes to help the man she loves, but soon finds herself embroiled in hidden agendas, old feuds and a family secret that will change Marcus’ life forever.
