Dashing through the hills, jingling bells, and laughing all the way is anything but fun with Scrooge MacGruff riding shotgun.
Boston advertising exec, Ellen Patterson, has always been a devilish elf, landing herself in trouble more times than not. As big as her personality is, her heart is even bigger. She can't help taking in wounded strays and trying to fix them. She'd love to find a man of her own like her best friends and coworkers, Samantha Darling and Amber Evans. But so far no one she's met has been man enough to handle her. But then she meets Detective MacKenzie Johnson who stuns everyone by showing up at Sam and Nate's wedding. Mac, aka Scrooge MacGruff, is the angry wounded half-brother to Sam's husband Nathan Snow. His father abandoned him and his mother couldn't handle him, so he grew up alone in an orphanage in Boston. Instantly melting, Ellen tries to heal Mac's wounds, but he won't let anyone get close to him. Doing what she does best, she leaves a lasting impression by kissing him under the mistletoe and then getting into as much trouble as possible so he can't ignore her. If all goes according to plan, she intends to ring in the New Year and make his spirit bright, but she underestimates the street smart, tough as nails cop and is stunned to discover she may have finally met her match.
