It's Dominic’s first Christmas since his divorce and, though he's spending it on his own, he's determined to have a traditional Christmas morning, including a roaring fire.
Which is why Reagan, a soot-haired chimney sweep, is head and shoulders up Dominic's flue.
Unable to take his eyes off Reagan's low-slung jeans and enticing arse while he sets about the hearth with rods and brushes, Dominic knows five years is a long time to have an obsession with the man who sweeps his chimney every Christmas.
This year there's nothing to stop Dominic from acting on his desires.
But Dominic will need to stop hiding who he really is before a special sweep can light a fire in his heart.
