And Harvard student California Blue is having one hell of a holiday season. When a family emergency interrupts her tarot reading, California races to the hospital…accidentally running into a dark stranger. Despite the circumstances, California’s drawn to him. Her body’s on fire for him, and she can’t extinguish the burning flames…
Manhattan banker London Shaw hooks up with women for one reason—to release the stress of his daily work grind. But when his father falls ill, London flies to Boston, only to have a mystery woman slam into him outside the hospital. London never feels emotion for a woman, not anymore. And this one is completely hidden, bundled up to the eyes in layers of winter clothing. So what is that sensation in his heart?
California has vowed she’ll never commit to a romantic relationship, or even a meaningless fling. But the dark stranger from outside the hospital has her reeling, and when she runs into him again at a holiday masquerade party, her body threatens to betray her self-imposed vow. Will California let down her guard and show London what’s Underneath the Mask?
