In the wintry world of the culmins, there are rules… Kaya James doesn’t believe in most of them. One must marry and start a family early in life, and she makes it well known that is not for her… So, why would anyone send her a secret gift with a sweet note attached, leaving it unsigned? Men are not romantic, at least that’s what she always thought. But her secret friend is making her second guess everything. With gifts that keep coming, and an overbearing mother that keeps pushing her to marry someone- anyone- what’s a strong-minded culmin woman like Kaya to do? She has always been openly defiant of the rules, proudly so. But receiving notes that are more thoughtful than the next and with a little help from the Paragons watching from afar, Kaya’s heart may not be as safe from love as she once believed.
