It's Christmas, and all antique dealer Sebastian Snow wants is for his business to make money and to save his floundering relationship with closeted CSU detective, Neil Millett. When Snow's Antique Emporium is broken into and a heart is found under the floorboards, Sebastian can't let the mystery rest.
He soon finds himself caught up in murder investigations that echo the macabre stories of Edgar Allan Poe. To make matters worse, Sebastian's sleuthing is causing his relationship with Neil to crumble, while at the same time he's falling hard for the lead detective on the case, Calvin Winter. Sebastian and Calvin must work together to unravel the mystery behind the killings, despite the mounting danger and sexual tension, before Sebastian becomes the next victim.
In the end, Sebastian only wants to get out of this mess alive, and live happily ever after with Calvin.

This wasn't your typical "Romance/Suspense". I truly enjoyed this story so much.
We have Sebastian Snow, an antiques dealer, who opens his shop one morning to a disturbing finding. Enter a sexy, ginger detective, Calvin Winter, lead detective. Sebastian is currently in a relationship with a cop, Neil Millet, but Neil isn't quite ready for the world to see him. As the relationship continues, Sebastian re-evaluates what he's willing to tolerate.
As Sebastian tries to forget the events of that snowy morning, things get weirder. Events unfold and they start to play out like stories from Edgar Allan Poe. Detective Winter is the knight in shining armor. He's there when Sebastian needs him and the banter between the two are witty and adorable. While Sebastian wore his heart on his sleeve, Calvin was a bit more mysterious. Calvin was a bit complex and that made the relationship that much more interesting.
The dynamics of Calvin's and Sebastian's relationship blurred the lines between professional and personal, but it helped the story progress. With the aid of a few secondary characters, the plot came to a head and you see where Calvin and Sebastian stood with their relationship, and I couldn't help but wonder, "What comes next for them?" I'm extremely interested to see where they go from here!
