Yes I have been warned not to read it before but it was so good that I actually want to read the series now. And I can always re-read it to get the jokes. ;)

Note: This story is a free companion to the Tales of the Darkworld series and is not a standalone Christmas story. If you have not read any of the books, you may miss out on some excellent in-jokes and references.

Which is why I ended up giving this a two star rating. I haven't read any of the other Darkworld stories so I was pretty lost. However I did find it intriguing enough that I think I will add them to me TBR pile. Plenty of sexy times and paranormal romance.

This is a lovely short story that spends Christmas Eve and the beginning of Christmas Day with the large Antaeus family. I loved seeing the family together and each of the couples doing well. Darius was the only one without a mate, and his story is next.

a little note: there is one m/m scene between Garret and Holden, but I didn't think it went into as much detail as with the other couples.
Couldn't finish it. Might come back to it when and if I ever read the actual series.
A fun Christmas time romp with the couples from the Darkworld series.
