Desperate to escape her controlling family, Chloe Bradford scrambles up to the housetop of her Texas home on Christmas Eve. There she discovers a sexy stranger cloaked in shadow. He convinces her to shed her good-girl image and give into her most secret desires. The man's low, raspy voice tugs at her memory as much as it awakens her passion. Is he a Christmas miracle, or some figment of her imagination? When he tries to leave, she follows him, eager to learn his identity.

Zach can't stop thinking about Chloe, or their reunion on the roof. His wolf-half urges him to reveal his identity and claim her, but he doesn't dare. For both their sakes, he must remain in the shadows until he can control his inner beast's bursts of rage. After a decade of struggle he thought he could handle his curse, but Chloe's presence causes his control to slip. As the moon-rages become more frequent, he knows he's slipping toward the insanity that claims many of his kind. Only Chloe can save him, but he broke her heart over a decade ago. Her forgiveness would be the real Christmas miracle.

Top quality writer with a mediocre delivery on an intriguing idea. The premise if phenomenal, the writing descriptive, the characters and plot are ripe for exploration. The story is ready to be told. The problem is that it really isn’t told in this book. I get a small glimpse of Chloe and that she’s unhappy in the life wanted for her by her family. Zach had the life he wanted until it was ripped away on a night that changed everyone’s futures. Most of the threads in this plot line are unanswered. All we really know at the end is that Chloe and Zach want to be together and I was left with the impression they were ready to fight for each other…and whatever is out there…waiting in the next book to be told to the reader.
