In the spirit of Christmas, two people get something they weren’t even looking for, but was exactly what they needed- family, home, love, trust, and support. They were such opposites at first that it was like oil and water. But when the fur settles, they both come out winners.

Kyle struts around with his ‘I am an island’ routine trying to protect his poor heart after his former fiancé’ trampled on it. There is no way he’ll be the butt of anyone’s laughter again even if it means playing Scrooge instead of Rudolf for the town Christmas Parade. Okay, well the new cougar shifter in town might persuade him, but in the end it’s the hopeful eyes of a sweet child that may be his downfall.

Crystal has made a string of poor decisions regarding men which brought her and her daughter to Kodiak Point. Everyone seems nice and its a good place to start over. Things are coming right along until she needs the help of the only guy in town who can give it and he’s too stuck on himself to help out. Good thing too because if he had been nice she might have fallen for him. But uh-oh, he has made friends with her daughter bringing that scared little girl out of her shell and proving that there’s more to him than she thought. Maybe she’ll have to re-think that no men plan.

This one has some fun scenes and some lighter moments particularly when Kyle is with Crystal’s little girl- sucker for the guy/little girl stuff particularly when he’s protecting her from danger. However, this isn’t as light as others in the serious moments with its painful elements of abuse and stalking. Not to worry, it doesn’t go too dark. Now that being said, Kyle’s got some swagger and game. He has no trouble making it clear too. Crystal doesn’t really stand a chance when he figures out that he’s ready to settle down and he’s picked out her and her daughter to be his. Crystal is no push over though and she makes the cocky caribou nearly swallow his tongue a few times.

All in all, this fast little Christmas paranormal romance was engaging and a nice addition to the series though it can easily be read as a standalone.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

    I loved this story. It was so cute.

    • It was. They were all just a perfect little family together.

  • Sounds cute, I have not read her in a while and she is one of those authors I want to get back to.

    • Oh yes! Her books are great when you need a bit of cheer-up. This series is really good too.

  • Sounds awesome!!! I still need to read this series, especially since I have enjoyed some of her other books, and I just adore any romance with a christmas theme.

    • Yes, this series is a really good one. But, this Christmas one can read as a standalone if you just want this one. On sale right now too. O_o

  • Aw yay 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it too! I had fun with this one. Now I want to go back and read the rest of them. #TooManyBooks!

    • Too Many books is too right. I was thinking that when I read your Larissa Ione post and realized that here was just one more author I hadn’t gotten around to. 😉 I’m putting one extra day a week onto my list for Santa. I’ll even take all the other things off it just for that. What do you think, does it have promise?

  • Ooooooh, that’s so good, I’ll be reading it before the end of the week, I’ve already got it ! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Have fun, Iza! I think you’ll laugh a lot over this one.
