The Weather Outside is Frightful by Lucy Felthouse
I sincerely dislike winter, and I've never made any secret of it. The shorter days, the colder weather, the snow, the ice... ugh! I'd quite happily stay indoors from December until February, if I could. But I've got to out at least once, to see The Hobbit ;)
As a result of my dislike of cold, icy weather, the vast majority of my stories are set in the warmer months. I'm no stranger to penning stories that contain rainstorms. I can even cope with a chilly wind for a little while. But ice and snow are usually a no-no. Until this year.
When Drea came up with the idea of turning Santa's reindeer into shifters and writing erotic romances about them, I loved it. I'd never written a Christmas-themed story, and if I'm honest, I still haven't. My tale, Reindeer Games: Cupid, is actually set in the New Year, in early January. But there's still a liberal sprinkling of the Christmas season about it. There's also... wait for it... snow and ice! Yes, I finally wrote a tale containing that slippery stuff, and it's actually quite a central part of the plot.
You'll have to read it to find out why... ;)
As a postman by day, and one of Santa’s reindeer on a single very special night, Cassius Cupid eats, sleeps, and breathes deliveries. He doesn’t mind, but sometimes wishes that someone would send him something more exciting than bills and junk mail.
One cold January morning, Cassius gets his wish. A young woman arrives with a parcel. Turns out it’s for his housemate – but Cassius doesn’t care. All he’s interested in is Carina – the beautiful female courier.
Has Cupid finally met his match?
