Out of a job, low on savings, and the target of a hitman, Vivian is expecting the un-merriest Christmas ever.
Vivian is near the end of her rope and her means. After doing the right thing and alerting the authorities to the Ponzi scheme her bosses were running, she faces Christmas without a job, withouth money, and the target of someone who wants to make sure she can never testify against them.
Discovering she's acquired a protector who saves her life a couple of times should be a plus, but then he tells her he's a shape-shifting gargoyle, causing her to doubt her sanity and wonder if she isn't being set up to discredit her testimony.
But Glen is also a gorgeous, caring man, an excitingly dominant lover, and a great companion. Too bad what he wants from her in return is nearly impossible.
