Twelve elves left the North Pole to be free of all things Christmas and have been living together for decades. They have gone without their mates for years, but when the first of the twelve finds his, the others have hope of finding theirs.
Box hates candy canes and that his friends seem to pay attention to him only when they need something. When he finally meets Egan—the man who does see him—he must fight fiercely to keep him.
Egan is a bus driver who has endured constant abuse from a woman he just can’t seem to deny anything. The passionate bond that he shares with Box may be the key to overpowering that abuse with eternal happiness.
Will the love that Box and Egan share be enough to conquer the evil that has been plaguing Egan for too long, or will that evil destroy their promising relationship?
