Dazzler Spitfire is an elf on a mission. She has until Christmas to pull herself together, keep her magic, and her life. She heads to Holly, a town devoted to Christmas and home to her best friend. Together, they craft a plan to stay one step ahead of those wanting to bring her in front of the North Pole Review Board for trial.
Todd Dugan knows magic only works for others. His divorce from Dazzler’s cousin proves it. He’s fine tending to the reindeer for the western leg of Santa’s midnight ride. When he agrees to chair the holiday committee in Holly, he’ll prove human technology is just as good as magic.
Neither counts on the Dugan family curse: When a Dugan meets his mate, the lights in Holly will fall dark.
On the eve of Thanksgiving, the town’s mayor demands a demonstration to prove the Christmas decorations are behaving as they should. The tech works until Dazzler shows up, bringing his ex-wife with her. Now the town is determined to reunite Todd and his ex-wife.
But Todd’s thoughts are on Dazzler. A single kiss decides his fate. Dazzler sets out to seduce him. Is he willing to risk their friendship for something more? His heart makes the choice for him. For a brief moment, he has it all—friendship, love, and magic. Then Dazzler loses her magical abilities and gets sick. Worse, in a freak sleigh accident, Dazzler reduces the town’s Christmas displays to ash and cinders.
Dodging desperate women eager to bag him as a husband is not Jay Dugan’s idea of a good time. He’d much rather find out how things tick. When the god of time offers him a job maintaining that clock for the universe, Jay jumps at the offer. There are only two rules: Maintain the clock and beware of ghosts from the past.
Anysia Willot wants nothing more than to join her dead fiancé on the Other Side. Nysia’s one chance is to trick Jay into stopping the clock; and she’ll use any means necessary, including seduction.
As the clock counts down to New Year’s Day, Nysia finds herself being seduced by both the technology of this new world and Jay. Can she stay with Jay? Or will time stop because the past isn’t finished with her?
