The Christmas season is a time for giving, and pilot Maria Walken has a planeload of gifts for refugees in Syria. She’s determined to get her cargo delivered in time for the holidays, come hell or high water. When a handsome Sheikh shows up in need of a lift, she can’t stand his arrogance and wealth… Or the way he makes her heart race. But when he offers a large donation to her charity, she can hardly refuse.
Sheikh Jarik Shadid is desperate to get to Lebanon, to testify in a high-profile trial. He needs discrete transportation, and he’s more than willing to contribute to Maria’s charity in exchange for a seat on her plane. But when a freak snowstorm prevents them from taking off, Jarik’s no-nonsense attitude starts to melt. And his attraction to the beautiful, principled pilot grows stronger.
Maria always promised herself she’d never fall for a man like Jarik. But as they work together to spread holiday cheer, she begins to wonder… Is Jarik the Christmas present she’s been longing for?
