Lieutenant Ian Worth needs a wife by Christmas. He has to find her, woo her and wed her before he goes back to sea. Anne Lesley is a shy spinster with no prospects, so she accepts Ian's hasty offer if only for the security, and the house, the marriage will bring. But when a midwinter storm rolls in, things start to heat up between them, and they just might find a Christmas present they didn't expect: honest-to-goodness, true love.
