Book Blurb

From North Pole City to Winter Wonderland, preparations are underway after a royal announcement sweeps everyone into a frenzy of festivity. At the heart of the celebration are the city’s most beloved elf pilots, the Rein Dears. Once the Big Flight is behind them, the pilots prepare for the royal event. Assigned a special task of finding an Elska rose, Cupid and Blitzen are unaware of how their friendship is about to change forever.

Yet not all that glitters is gold. The sweet, angelic Cupid hides a dark secret, one that threatens to destroy his Rein Dear status, his friends, and the elf who’s captured his heart. It’s up to Blitzen to help Cupid see the light in the darkness and show him that together they can mend broken hearts.

Book Review

My “annual visit” to North Pole City and Winter Wonderland with all their fascinating inhabitants is one I look forward to. The North Pole is run like a modern company, the Rein Dear are a group of nine elite pilots in charge of the annual Big Flight, Mayor Kringle (the spirit of Christmas) is in charge, and the Frost family (spirits of winter of various talents) provides a hint of royalty and mystery in the neighboring Winter Wonderland. After last year’s adventure, where Rudy saved Jack Frost from a broken heart, I was curious to find out whose turn it would be this year to pair up. The story's focus is on Cupid and Blitz, both Rein Dear pilots.

Cupid and Blitz have been best friends for centuries, but when they kiss at the Frost King’s winter ball, something begins to change. There is only one problem: Cupid has a secret none of his friends know about, and it could endanger everything he has worked for since entering the Rein Dear Academy. Fear of this secret ruining his life, Cupid doesn’t say a thing when things begin to heat up between him and Blitz as they go on a quest to find the fabled Elska rose for Rudy.

Blitz is not good with expressing his feelings, but he feels drawn to Cupid, always has, and begins to understand it may be more than friendship. The initial shock when he finds out the truth added to fighting the evil that threatens all of them makes the other Rein Dears withdraw – but not Blitz. I was impressed with the level of trust he has and his determination to make things work.

Cupid and Blitz’s adventure is exciting and adds some more interesting facts to the North Pole City world. A few hints as to who might be next year’s couple have me eagerly awaiting next December! If you like this fantasy world, if best friends discovering they mean more to each other than they thought is your thing, and if you're looking for a read that is adventurous, romantic, and comes with a few surprises, then you will probably like this latest novella in the series.
