All Nova Williams wants is a magical first Christmas on board her narrowboat, Majestic. Movies, carols, and a hint of sparkle.
Until her Hollywood A-lister and Christmas-hating best friend hammers on her door in the middle of the night.
Only now, he's looking at her in ways that make her believe Christmas wishes do sometimes come true.
All Presley James wants is to hide from the press and save his detonated career. And there is only one place he can go.
To Nova and her narrowboat.
Except the confined space of Majestic must be messing with his brain. Surely he doesn't really want to kiss his best friend until he finds himself doing just that as their feelings boil over.
But when Presley's agent suggests a fake relationship with a leading actress to save his career, he faces a choice. Stay with Nova and lose the career he loves, or go back to LA and lose the woman he's falling in love with.
