A proposal of marriage, a pending divorce, and a Christmas Eve tragedy will change the lives of strangers Jay Avery and Claire Jordan in ways they never imagined. Alone on Christmas Eve, San Francisco biochemist-turned-cosmetics magnate Jay Avery prepares to iron out the details of what he hopes will be a quiet divorce from his surgeon wife, Hope Rosenberg. On the other side of the Bay City, acclaimed photographer Claire Jordan eyes the final gift under the tree--a tiny box she suspects holds an engagement ring from her media mogul boyfriend, feisty Brit Calvin Butterworth. As the night wears on, strangers Jay and Claire have no idea that their lives are about to intersect in the most unexpected way.
