His name was Eben Marley…Ebenezer, to be exact, and for the longest time, he'd lived exactly as the famous fictional Ebenezer from the old Christmas story. Well, almost exactly. Eben had two great loves, making money—and making love to women.
He did little more than work, and take as many women as he could, trying to forget the one woman who'd walked away from him. Then Eben met someone who was finally able to break through the ice around his heart. As he spent a long, sensuous night loving her sweet body and staring into her soft green eyes, he became frightened of the emotions she aroused in him. So he cruelly pushed her away.
Eben's life has been empty since that long-ago night, though the woman often haunts his dreams. On Christmas Eve, an accidental encounter brings it all rushing back. With the bitter taste of loneliness and regret riding him hard, Eben comes face to face with three determined…spirits? Turns out the Ebenezer of old was in fact a real man, and if Eben wants to avoid the hollow future that these spirits point out to him, he's going to have to look deep inside his heart…and hope that the woman he pushed away can forgive him.
