Polly’s life is in a mess. Her parents were recently murdered and her brother walked in on the scene just in time to be able to identify the fleeing assassins. Authorities promptly shut down all communication between the siblings and U.S. Marshals placed him in the Witness Protection Program. Since Polly was away at college in a different state at the time, no one knows whether she is in danger or not. Her brother was able to arrange for her to go off the grid by living in the attic of the building housing the fledging software company he and his best friend have founded to create computer games. She spends her days doing what she can to help her brother’s company and volunteering at a nearby orphanage. She spends her evenings beta testing the prototype game everyone is hoping will be the next big thing and make them all rich. She knows her online testing partner only by his gaming persona, Arthuric, who plays the hero to her Elfgurl, the thief. Initially, they had agreed not to share their real life information for privacy purposes, but as they spend their evenings together adventuring online, she regrets not knowing more about the man she is becoming very attracted to.
Nicholas has a keen interest in toys, especially keeping informed on all the new ones that are likely to appear on children’s Christmas request lists. With his engineering and computer training and his affinity for the Christmas magic that runs in his family, he has taken over the responsibility for overseeing all production at the North Pole. It keeps him very busy, but doesn’t feel like work because he loves what he does. As part of his desire to keep abreast of new developments, he has volunteered to help a fledgling company by beta testing their new adventure computer game. It’s a fun way to spend his evenings and he is enjoying being part of creating a worthwhile product for teenagers. Plus it doesn’t hurt that his gaming partner is a cute little elf with the most deliciously pointed ears… Living and working at the North Pole means that Nicholas hasn’t had much of an opportunity to meet single women, not that he was particularly adept socially when he was attending school and getting his degrees. It’s always hard to make a meaningful connection with a woman when you can’t tell her where you really live and that your father is Santa Claus. The anonymity agreement for the beta testing was a perfect solution to his problem in the beginning, but now he wants to know more about Pix, the woman who is his partner, especially since his family magic is telling him that she is scared that she is in danger. He wants to be more than the hero in the game; he wants to be her hero in real life. But how can he do that when it took him months just to learn her name?
