Sometimes love brings what seems like the wrong person at the right time.
Pax Harmon is a Hollywood screenwriter living on the fast track. His private life is nonexistent, but that’s fine with him because he’s surrounded by some annoying people. His nearest neighbor, Sam, is so old he should have retired decades ago, but the lure of fame and fortune still has him in its grip. Then there is Cade Westmore, an actor boasting soap opera fame and twink-y good looks.
But appearances can be deceiving. Everything goes wrong a week before Christmas. The things he thought about everything in his life, he realizes, are skewed. Cade has cancer, a very rare form of it and is fighting hard to make it. Then there’s Sam. Oh, Sam. Unable to save him, Pax hopes his newly discovered feelings for Cade are reciprocated. He needs sweetness. And incense and peppermints. But Cade brings so much more to his life, and Pax soon realizes love might just save him as well.
