A strait-laced guidance counselor with one birthday wish.
This Christmas, a steamy second chance romance twenty years in the making is about to ignite.
Happily divorced high school guidance counselor Noemie Saint has moved back to Kissing Springs to be closer to her mother after her father’s death. She wouldn’t say she’s avoiding the ex that broke her heart 20 years ago, but she’s certainly not going out of her way to run into him. That all changes when their worlds collide. Suddenly he’s back in her life, looking better than ever. After a mortifying chance meeting in the adult toy section, Jameson makes a snarky suggestion that Noemie decides to take him up on.
Jameson Mitchell is finally seeing his hard work pay off. He’s the owner of a successful fitness center and his daughter is in college exploring her independence. When an opportunity to reconnect with The One That Got Away presents itself, he jumps at the chance. Twenty years ago, he chose to do the right thing and let Noemie go. Now that she’s moved back to town and they are both single, he’s sure he can convince her they belong together.
She wants one night, he wants forever. Can this second chance couple make some Christmas magic?

Tristán Solano, famous as Trystan Sol in the rock music world, grew up across the street from Jillian Magee, his first friend at five years old and the woman he left in order to grab the brass ring. After eight years with a popular group, earning more money than he can possibly spend in one lifetime, he longs for his old, uncomplicated life. As Christmas approaches, he leaves the band and heads home with his four-year-old daughter.
Will Jillian have her heart broken again, or can she and Tristán overcome the past and keep each other warm this Christmas?
