Jack Frost has a problem. He’s the mythical power behind the elements of ice, snow, and frost, but his fame is being usurped by a fictional Frozen queen. So Jack’s the grumpiest man in Yuleland and is in need of a naughty distraction.
Rudolph Hreinn has a problem, as well. Rudy’s in high demand on Christmas, but the rest of the year he’s scorned by everyone for being different. So Rudy’s the saddest man in Yuleland and desperate for a nice diversion.
When the winter sprite and the reindeer shifter meet, after a rocky start, a friendship of like minds is born. Attraction soon follows. But then strange things start to happen. Odd omens warn them of dire consequences for Yuleland and for the winter holidays should they fall for each other.
Can love unite two lonely men and save Christmas? It’s the most wonderful time of the year—for some frosty reindeer games.
This is more of a winter tale than it is a Christmas story. Jack Frost is a Sprite that is powerful and has a serious attitude. One that serves him well and is invaluable to his friend Rudolph Hreinn. Rudy is made fun of constantly, it’s so cruel how he’s treated. But Jack has zero tolerance for people who are mean to his beautiful friend.
But, Jack is ice and Rudy is fire… the two don’t mix, or do they? Susan Laine has written a very sexy tale between opposites that has adventure, hotness, epic love, and great sacrifice! There was some angst to this tale and for a while there I was quite depressed reading it. Rudy gives up so much and that on top of spending his whole life being verbally tormented; I was almost at my wits end.
We do meet some colorful characters in this book and are taken on a wonderful adventure to save the world. It’s an enjoyable read and one that will thrust you into exciting magic, and amazing love.
