Oliver Bascombe has problems. He's on the verge of marriage to a young woman he's not sure he loves, but feels he must marry for diverse reasons--none of them particularly romantic. He's given up his ambitions of becoming an actor and joined his father's law firm, only to begin the next step toward settling down and becoming respectable. Although his sister Collette understands his misgivings, Oliver cannot speak with his stern, forbidding father...and that's when everything in Oliver's life gets much, much worse.From official release/information:
Book Description: Yielding to his father's wishes, Oliver Bascombe abandoned his dream of being an actor and joined the family law firm. Now he will marry a lovely young woman bearing the Bascombe stamp of approval. But on the eve of his wedding, a blizzard sweeps in–bringing with it an icy legend who calls into question everything Oliver believes about the world and his place in it....
Pursued by a murderous creature who heeds no boundaries, Jack Frost needs Oliver's help to save both himself and his world–an alternate reality slowly being displaced by our own. To help him, Oliver Bascombe, attorney-at-law, will have to become Oliver Bascombe, adventurer, hero–and hunted. So begins a magnificent journey where he straddles two realities…and where, even amid danger, Oliver finds freedom for the very first time.
