Convinced that there is no Santa, Ava decides to ask him for the impossible, a baby for Carson and Keegan. She knows it will never happen, even though a deep part of her can’t help but hope. Everyone, even a little girl like her, can tell the couple wants a child of their own so badly.

But the holidays are a time for miracles, so who knows what could happen? Maybe the mates will have their wish come true and prove to Ava that yes, there is a Santa Claus.

First edition published by eXtasy Books, December 2012.

Book Review

"Come on. Some fat guy who sneaks into your house in the middle of the night, eats all your cookies, and leaves behind some boring toys? It all sounds shady to me."
"So, if you want to prove to me that there really is a Santa, then you better tell chubby to bring Carson and Keegan a baby of their own."

I know I keep saying it but, wow, it's hard to believe I'm at book twenty-two of the 'Lost Shifters' series and the author continues to keep me entertained. 'A Christmas for Ava' is another book that revolves around Shane and his family. I adore Shane, as he is my very favorite sociopath, and Ava is Shane and Trevor’s adopted daughter. Ava is a leopard, like Shane, and she was sold into slavery as a baby and trained to be an assassin. Ava is seven now and she's sort of a scary little girl. Most of the other shifter children in the coalition don't like to play with her, mainly because in Ava's mind play involves a knife and someone dying. But this Christmas she is determined to prove that Santa doesn't exist, so she asks for a baby for Carson and Keegan, knowing full well Santa won't be able to deliver.

It's now Christmas Eve and Shane and his team are hunting a feral snake shifter and the evil that controls him. As it turns out, the evil is Carson's uncle who has been presumed dead for years. Killing the snake and its master before Christmas morning becomes the priority. But, you aren't going to believe what Carson finds in his uncle's home.

I can't tell you whether Carson and Keegan got their Christmas miracle, or if Ava became a believer. You'll have to read this fun and short addition to the series.
