Anna McCallister loves her billionaire real estate tycoon boss, Henry Reid, with all her heart. She loves his kindness, his innovation, his endless optimism, and his sense of humor. Not to mention the fantasies she has about him day and night. But shy, gentle Anna wouldn't dream of approaching him with her desires. She has convinced herself that he could never be interested in her, but takes every opportunity she can to be with him. On Christmas Eve, she gladly goes with him on a visit to a Catskills farmhouse that his company just completed rebuilding. There, they plan to tour the place, finish up with the construction team, and have a nice dinner with one of Henry's friends.
Henry left off dating a few years ago after a horrible breakup led to his being stalked by his ex. He claims to be “picky”, leaving Anna to feel that she has no chance. But when Henry's dour but attractive foreman, James Thompson, flirts with Anna openly in front of him, Henry reacts with obvious jealousy. Unfortunately this leads to his ignoring James when the man tries to warn him that a powerful snowstorm is bearing down on them. Later that night, before the pair can leave, the snowstorm hits, trapping them inside the farmhouse with only a few supplies.
They have two days before they run out of the means to heat the farmhouse in the freezing weather. In the deepening cold, they share a bed for warmth...and Anna's longing catches fire when she finds herself in Henry's sleepy embrace.
