Chemist and budding romance writer Olivia Chasen is on a cruise to avoid spending Christmas with her beautiful twin sister and new fiancé-Olivia's ex. Now, thanks to her lonely, intoxicated ramblings on Santa's lap, her fellow passengers think she's in love with a fictional character. Former Navy SEAL Commander Jace Morse has dealt with plenty of unusual situations in his career, but he's never had the honor, the pleasure, or the privilege of being a beautiful and intelligent woman's fantasy hero come to life. While he hasn't officially met the sexy chemist, he's sure eager to explore the chemistry that's sizzling between them. Bringing the charming SEAL together with the skeptical Olivia is going to take more than just Christmas cookies and a little help from Mrs. Claus; it's gonna take a heaping dose of Christmas magic.
