Roone Sorley is an elf on a mission. He has one year to live in the mortal world and experience everything it has to offer before deciding if he is going to return to the North Pole and immortality or stay and become human. Christmas in Australia is all sun, sand, and surf. For Kyle Morgan, that means lots of tourists wanting to learn how to surf, but he hates Christmas. This time of year always reminds him about the family he doesn’t have.
With the clock ticking and only days left, Roone plans on making the most of the heat and the beach and his hot surfing instructor. Beyond that he has no idea what he wants. However with a little magic, he might be able to give Kyle exactly what he needs.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
I am totally amazed what some authors can do in just a 41 pages or less. This is my first book by this author and they are in a really good place with me because I loved this book and really loved the characters. I highly disappointed that this author does not have any other books out yet (cries softly). This was a very slow-burn type of read and it was amazing that the author was able to pull this off in 41 pages. I will definitely be watching for more books by this author.
TJ Nichols is happiest with a bourbon in hand and a cat on the lap while plotting to take over the world… no, sorry that is TJ’s supervillain alter ego. TJ is an avid runner, martial arts enthusiast, and self-confessed nerd who does like bourbon, cats, and plotting to take over the world when writing. Having grown up reading thrillers and fantasy novels, it was no surprise that mixing danger and magic came so easily. After traveling all over the world, TJ now lives in Perth, Western Australia.
