What was meant to be a one-night stand between a demon and the mortal he was sent to claim has turned into something more. Chance has got to regain control -- even if it means presenting his mortal lover with the perfect gift -- one hunk of an ex wrapped in cuffs and a red leather bow.

I'm going to freeze to death on this bloody mountain.

Josh's teeth chattered. He rubbed his gloved hands together to restore feeling. The small hole he'd managed to dig through the snow up to the surface was covered over again. A half dozen pokes with his ski pole and the snow gave way, opening up the thin air hole once more. The problem was all he had was one tiny air hole and not a prayer of being found.

Not that he'd bothered to pray. What would be the point? He was going to die. Josh sank back onto his frozen ass, folding his body to hold the heat as long as he could.

"Shit, shit, shit." He stood up again, stomping across the small snow cave. "I don't want to die!" His angry voice cracked as it bounced back and forth in the small space. Some snow broke off one wall, reminding him how precarious his shelter was.

"Josh Franklin?" a voice echoed down from above the snow.

Saved? He was saved! "I'm here! I'm Josh Franklin!"

"Back up as far as you can." The words were quiet, almost as if the guy was whispering.

Josh backed up away from the small air hole, which had begun to shed dustings and small chunks of snow. Then what was falling wasn't snow at all, but water, dripping to the cave floor.

"Hey!" What the hell was this guy thinking? Any second the five plus feet of snow would collapse and crush him and possibly his rescuer too.

But it wasn't snow, or even water, that came down. It was red and gold light. Josh held up one hand to block the glare even while he squinted to see the man standing at the center of the glow. "I'm being saved by an angel?"

The gorgeous guy snorted. "Fuck that. I'm no angel and you haven't been good enough to rate an angel anyhow. Only thing you got right is I'm here for you."

"What do you want?" He dropped his hand when the light dimmed, revealing a very sexy man whose skin continued to glow the color of a warm, cozy fire.

"You're about to die on this damn mountain. I plan to heat your ass up before I take you --" he pointed to the floor of the snow cave, "-- down."
