    Running late again, Adrian weaves his way through the crows to a critical meeting. A bump, a jostle – he almost landed on the ground and too bad he’d been so brusque with the tall-and-handsome who kept him from crashing to the sidewalk. 
    Except the tall-and-handsome also picked his pocket, and with it, his all-important phone. 
    Hoping to lure the thief and get his cell phone back, Adrian sends a text. When the tall-and-handsome arrives, Adrian realizes they have a lot in common. 
    And the looks they trade threaten to incinerate his paperwork.

    Sometimes it takes a village to fall in love. 
    Eccentric, reclusive, socially awkward project designer Evan Myles doesn’t date. Paying for sex with professionals is so much more efficient and suits his needs well enough. But when he’s on assignment in rural Logan, Minnesota, for the Christmas Town project and a handsome stranger at the bar catches his attention, Evan decides it’s time to break his rule. It doesn’t matter that he’s never so much as flirted before. It can’t be that hard, can it? 
    Davidson Incorporated lead architect Terry Reid hasn’t been hit on so clumsily in his life. Terry’s the first to admit he’s a neurotic Prince Charming, and he’s kissed his share of male and female frogs, but he’s never met anyone quite like Evan Myles. Evan calls Terry by the wrong name, mistakes Terry for a simple construction worker, and picks apart his work as an architect. Despite this rough start, Terry is lured by the brilliance of Evan’s ideas, his quirky personality, and once they’re alone in Evan’s cabin, the man’s mad skills in bed. Yet Terry knows it takes more than a single night of passion to make a relationship work, and after so many failures, he’s just not ready to try again. 
    Evan and Terry’s path is strewn with stones neither of them can dislodge. Fortunately, they’re not alone on the road to romance. They’re in Christmas Town, home to matchmakers, meddlers, and more “fairy godfathers” than they could possibly know what to do with. 
    Most importantly, in Logan, Minnesota, happy ever after is guaranteed.
