Young Amish widow Annabell Kranz wants one thing for Christmas–to satisfy her secret desires before she remarries a man from her community. When she sneaks from her village and gets lost one blustery night near the quaint town of Cool Hollow, Missouri, it’s an outsider who rescues Annabell. The intriguing, beautiful furniture maker Nicole Croft awakens things in Annabell she didn’t know existed. Things she should never feel–or do.
Following a recent breakup with her girlfriend, Nicole is in no mood to bother with a half-frozen woman in Amish garb…until she gazes into Annabell’s needy eyes, sees into her lost soul, and hears her soft pleas to undress her, warm her, make love to her.
What Annabell wants, Nicole can give. But if she does, the two will have just seven days before Annabell walks out of Nicole’s life forever…and marries an Amish man.
