'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes

Justin's Christmas is hexed until Ramon discovers what to do next.

With his new invention, Tingle Bells, Justin Clancy is set to provide a merry, prosperous Christmas for his family. These aphrodisiac bells are the perfect stocking stuffer--until a cruel hex transforms their tones into croaks. Far from adept at the family witchcraft, Justin needs expert help, fast, or the Clancy Christmas will go down the tubes.

Trust-fund wealthy Ramon Ramirez is a private eye certified for metaphysical investigations--and a loner. Sparks fly the moment the men meet. Ramon falls for Justin and his whole family. But when it comes to bonding, Ramon fears he's Teflon-coated. Justin suspects Ramon is slumming and will end up rejecting him.

Will an eccentric family feud, mangled bells, and tons of baggage destroy Justin and Ramon? Or do they have a chance at their own Christmas magic?
