'Tis the season of merriness, murder, and post-mortems... England, 2186. Mortuary pathologist Cassia Rames is a recent divorcee, and although she's not afraid on her own, she is lonely. Homicide detective Sebastian Flynn is determined to fix that with his friendship -- but it's hard not to let their late-night hobbies turn into a fling. He believes he's no good for a woman like Cassia, no matter how tempting she is. Cassia was a woman who wanted happy endings. Now she wants a man who doesn't do commitment, so being with Sebastian could be the perfect arrangement...if only he'd let her in. * Inspector Rames holiday sequel. Complete.
