Garnet Evergreen n’a jamais entendu parler d’un lutin abandonnant le pôle Nord pour les beaux yeux d’un humain, mais il espère bien être le premier. Depuis la première fois où il a croisé les yeux pleins de tristesse de Wes, Garnet n’a pu se défaire d’un profond sentiment d’appartenance. Au fil des ans, il a observé le garçonnet devenir un homme, et il est désormais bien déterminé à offrir à Wes un Noël qu’il n’oubliera jamais. Si seulement Garnet avait pensé à tester le traîneau de son père avant de partir... Orphelin depuis l’enfance, Wes passe chaque Noël seul dans sa cabane. Lorsqu’il est réveillé par une explosion étrange et découvre un elfe évanoui dans les ruines de son traîneau, il ne sait pas comment réagir. Car Wes ne donne pas dans la fantaisie, il ne croit pas aux histoires de père Noël et de rennes volants. Mais une partie de lui veut désespérément croire Garnet quand celui-ci lui promet l’éternité, même si la vie lui a apprit que personne ne reste bien longtemps à ses côtés...

Now, despite a slightly hairy handicap, he just wants to live an ordinary—if lonely—life as an architect. He tries to keep his wild impulses in check, but after one too many close calls, Dylan gives up his urban life and moves to the country, where he will be less likely to harm someone else. His new home is a dilapidated but promising house that comes with a former Christmas tree farm and a solitary neighbor: sexy, rustic Chris Nock.
