    As I began reading this short story inclusion in this year’s Advent Calendar by Dreamspinner Press, I was struck by the notion that I should have had my colleague read this one as I believe she might have gotten even more out of it than I did.

    Starring two men with hidden insecurities, people in their past who hurt them, and a totally unexpected attraction between them that neither has a clue what to do with, this story is a rather angst-filled, sometimes painful journey toward love.

    I was intrigued by the blurb for ‘A Holiday Tradition’ as a holiday season spent with a grandpa in the state with the most retirees and elderly seemed as if it might provide some humor.

    With two men who have opposite intentions, this is quite a tension-filled not-quite-romance, until it is. David has absolutely no interest in Erik, or so he keeps telling himself to avoid getting his heart broken again.

    There are a few stories where Jack Frost is a nice guy, like any other mythological Christmas or North Pole being, but this is definitely not one of them.
