When Queen Anna dies young, she promises her beloved husband, Sheikh Khazan, he will never know a lonely Christmas. She spent every Christmas Eve with him at Winterthorne, their Irish castle, ever since.
This year, change is in the air. Yearning to feel his touch again, Anna struck a bargain with the powers that be to experience love in the flesh with Khazan one last time.
Old Sheikh Khazan rarely leaves the Irish castle that belonged to his lovely young wife. He lives all year for the one special night when he is reunited with his soul mate. When she arrives this time as a flesh and blood woman again, he wonders at the power of her magic, and is overjoyed. Until he learns the price she paid in return for this rare gift.
All Anna wants is for Khazan to go with her when she leaves this time, so they will never be parted again. Is he willing to give up everything else he holds dear to be with her for all eternity?
