Synopsis from Goodreads:

It's Christmas!... 

Things are going well in Rabbit Creek. Elizabeth has taken her duties as the Alpha's Mate to heart and as the story opens, that heart is breaking for the loneliness and isolation of one of her pack. It's Christmas Eve and no one should be lonely at Christmas. 

Lindy doesn't feel like she has much to celebrate. After two years of widowhood, she can barely make ends meet without the aid of her pack and while her inner wolf is ready to move on, Lindy isn't sure she can let go of the past. 

New to the pack, Travis had party plans for the Holidays, but he ends up playing Santa to a pretty little widow and her pup. She's not what he was looking for, but she's exactly what he wants and his inner wolf agrees. Now all he has to do is convince Lindy that Christmas gifts aren't always the ones you find under the tree.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This one is definitely another hit for the brilliant Jacqueline Rhoades. In this tale she returns, along with her characters, to Rabbit Creek and you feel like you never left. Her phenomenal descriptions combine with her inviting tone to draw you into a world you don’t just want to live in, but rather one that you feel like you already do. Rhoades’ amazing abilities as a storyteller draw you in and evoke your emotions. She made me laugh, made me cringe, and even brought a few tears to my eyes. It was absolutely perfect.

I think that Travis and Lindy may just be my favourite wolver couple yet. They are definitely proof that opposites attract but are definitely brilliant individuals in their own rights. Rhoades brings these two characters to us as fully developed individuals who are easy to relate to, even in the short page count of this novella. The supporting cast is developed throughout the series and as they are background players in this tale they shine quite well as they are.

This is definitely a brilliant holiday tale that will warm your heart. It can easily be read as a standalone or as part of the Wolvers series and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone at all.
