This Christmas, retired spy Blue and his wife Helena have more to worry about than a holiday ball with his frosty parents. Months ago Blue promised Helena to put her first in his life and retire from spying.
But when operatives from his past suddenly reappear, Blue will have to choose between the love of his life and the mission that could prove too enticing to refuse.

At the ball, his parents try to pair him with debutantes while his brothers dance with Helena. As they are very serious about their dislike of his marriage to Helena and are willing to go to any lengths to break them up. Will they be successful?
