DJ Delaney has two days off, a refrigerator full of food, and a tree with a thousand lights on it. What he doesn’t have is anyone to share it with, because his boyfriend decided two days ago that he couldn’t handle dating a cop anymore. DJ comes home on Christmas Eve and finds a soldier standing outside his duplex, in the snow, looking lost. One look into pale blue eyes, and DJ is curious enough to offer the guy a warm place to wait while he calls a cab, and then, on impulse, offers to make him dinner.
Berg Pederson is out of the Army and out of the closet, and he’s travelled clear across the United States to spend Christmas with a former lover. Or at least that’s the plan, until the guy’s wife answers the door when Berg shows up. Now he’s stranded in a strange town on Christmas Eve, with no place to stay and no idea what to do next. Berg isn’t sure why the tall cop seems to be into him, since guys who look like DJ don’t usually go for guys who look like Norwegian farmers from the Midwest. But he’s not going to argue, because after all, it’s Christmas Eve, and sometimes miracles do happen.
