Book Blurb

It's just an average day at the local mall's Christmas Village... there's an elf shortage, no manager in sight, and an unknown person hiding behind a big white beard. Still, everything is under control. Mostly. Sort of... until the klutziest elf of all slips onto the scene in slick bottomed, pointy-toed shoes... and slides right into the waiting arms of the Counterfeit Claus.


Book Review

Sweet, hot, and fun, this is a very cute story full of Holiday cheer, almost-catastrophic accidents and more than a little heat. From the yummy character descriptions to lots of hot kisses in the locker room of the characters' local mall, there is enough steam here to suspect a sauna is around the corner.

Adrien is a student and too clumsy to live (I have no idea how he survives), and Devon is such a stud, who clearly has a soft inner core and a big heart. There is quite a bit of background about the characters and their friends for such a short story, but it helped me understand them better. When they finally do meet, the heat increases exponentially, and it becomes clear they are ready for more; which I hope we will get to see in a follow-up or a longer version of this free story.

If you like sweet stories about klutzy characters who are saved by "action hero"-like tough men, if you enjoy reading Holiday stories that will make you laugh, and if you’re looking for a little heat with your Christmas cheer, then you will probably like this short book.
