When spirited Maeve O'Malley stumbles upon an unconscious man one snowy night in December, she doesn't think twice before coming to his rescue.
But her good intentions are no match for her brother's sense of propriety, and before long Maeve is married to the nameless-and irresistibly attractive stranger. It doesn't matter who he is, because Maeve is certain he's a gift from above -- one she means to keep.
An art collector from one of Boston's oldest and wealthiest families, Charles Rycroft is astounded to learn that he's a married man when his memory returns -- and that his lovely Irish wife is one of Boston's serving class. Intending only to give Maeve a bit of polish before ending their hasty union, Charles's primary concern is finding the valuable sketch of St. Nicholas that was stolen when he was robbed. Yet Maeve's presence in his home is a dazzling ray of light, and as Christmas nears, he suspects her love may be his greatest joy.
