An actor in the closet, a sheriff in love, and memories that won’t stay hidden
Jordan Darby is known as the king of Christmas. Filming at Crooked Tree Ranch in Montana in the ice and snow, Jordan, the star of eight made-for-TV Christmas movies and the leading man who always gets his girl, is fighting to make a go of his new company and dealing with fears of exposure over one huge secret. After all, who the hell would buy into him being a straight romantic lead if rumors about him being gay were proven to be true?
Sheriff Ryan Carter is advising on the new movie being made at Crooked Tree. He hoped this would be one day of work and nothing more. Until, that is, he meets the hero. But while Jordan is sexy, he’s also very much stuck in the closet - everything that Ryan doesn’t need in his life. And when lust becomes part of the equation, Ryan’s quiet life is thrown into turmoil.
Their story unfolds against the chaos that overtakes the ranch, with Adam regaining memories that terrify him and make him look at Justin differently, and Justin leaving the ranch to make things right. Only through trusting in love and friendship can Justin and Adam learn to look to the future instead of letting the past destroy everything. But will they ever see clearly enough to do that?
