Dashing through the snow is no fun when you're running for your life...
For reindeer shifter Kaelar, Christmas means a lot more than caroling and hot chocolate. Without him and his fellow reindeer working for Santa, excess joy would go to waste instead of into the hearts of children who need it.

Kaelar is committed to the season and the work that comes with it—even when i

I absolutely loved this book and was honored to have been able to read and review. It was such a phenomenal read and had amazing characters as well as an amazing story line. I just could not get enough of it and once I started reading it I could not put it down. I recommend that you read it.

This was a wonderful novella to get me in the mood for the holiday! It was well written and edited cleanly, with very few if any typos or wrong word choices. I really liked the fact that the model on the cover of this novel had dark brown skin just like the romantic hero of this novel did. I loved the fact that the reilendeer species is able to distribute joy to those in need, and the fact that the sci-fi elements of this story were seamlessly integrated into the holiday mythology. The idea of S ...more

I'm still getting a kick out of these reindeer shifters, but I'm having a hard time divorcing myself from the mythology laid out in previous stories (for the record, these books are all stand-alones with separate mythology and characters from book to book). I'm going to go on record as saying I was on A LOT of cold meds while I was reading this particular book, so I might have mixed up other releindeer abilities with the abilities of this particular gentleman.

Anywho. Kaelar! And Chloe! He's a r

Reindeer shifter Kaelar is not from Earth but he has lived here many years. He works for Santa collecting excess joy and passing it onto the people who need it most.
Chloe is a doctor working on the children’s ward and so far, has not met her Mr Right.
When they bump into each other, literally, Kaelar apologises and eventually agrees to visit the children in hospital to make up for the accident.
But all this Christmas joy has got the attention of some nasty aliens and they must try to find and stop

Chloe is a doctor working with the children at the local hospital . She's a very dedicated doctor and has no time for dating. She ends up meeting Kaelar who loves his work spreading joy around the holidays. Kaelar happens to meet his mate, Chloe, and he's trying to find the people who are stealing the joy in his town. Chloe knows that Kaelar is someone special and she finds that he is an Alien reindeer and one of Santa's helpers. This was a fun book to read especially as it's getting close to Ch ...more

Kaelar’s Joy is remarkable


The fantastic and amazing thing about escapist entertainment is it can offer us a glimpse of another world, in this case, a world where beings like Kaelar can collect excess Joy, floating in the ether, and distribute it to those most in need. What a wonderful, and remarkable, holiday gift.

Chloe, the Doctor Kaelar meets while on his rounds offers insight into how some spend their holidays — and why they might need a little of our excess joy.

This done in one quick read is

Kaelar was an alien that looked human in one form but with antlers because he didn’t want to lose them and they looked like reindeer in their other form. They helped Santa distribute joy on earth. Chloe was a small town doctor. When the two of them met he realized she was his mate. She couldn’t stop thinking about him. This was a sweet and fun read.

Chloe is a doctor in a hospital who tries to keep the seriously ill children in her care calm and as happy as they can be. Kaelar is a reindeer shifter and one of Santa's helpers. His role is to spread joy wherever he can. Naturally he and Chloe are brought together over their dedication to the children, and when another alien race attacks stealing all the joy to sell for profit, this has to be stopped!

This is a sweet little story with a lot of love and joy and just enough lovin'!

The perfect read for the holidays
What an adorable new take on Santa and his reindeer. The author really managed to bring the joy of the holiday season to this book, along with the discord that makes up a great romance story. I really enjoyed the way these characters found their own joy and their HEA. I especially liked the way they brought joy to everyone around them. I can’t wait to read the next book by this author.

I loved this book. This is a fabulous story! Pediatrician Chloe ‘s patients are having a rough night. Kaelar a reilander is assigned to spread joy so he changes into a reindeer spreading joy among the patients. Only to find something is stealing the joy from the town but who? These two try to solve the problem and find love also. It is a great light hearted sci fi.

This is a great Christmas story, full of small town romance, family, drama, danger, and, of course, joy. The main characters have a great attraction to each other and their chemistry sizzles, even as they race both into helping children and also danger as they struggle to save Christmas joy from becoming a black market item. Crazy thought and this thoroughly engaging story takes us on the 'ride' of a lifetime. Good fun! ...more

I loved this story even though it’s only a short one but who doesn’t love Christmas and sexy reindeer, this book is a real treat it’s including aliens who want to steal the joy of Christmas boo to them. I won’t go into detail with this story because the blurb says it all but if you love stories about sexy hero’s finding their mates and saving Christmas then this is the book for you. I loved this story and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

JOY to the World!

This is definitely the book for you if you want to get into the holiday spirit! A reilendeer shifter, a good-hearted Doctor, and children craving some Christmas love from their hospital beds crash against a nefarious plot by aliens trying to steal and resell Joy on the black market. A feel good story with a sexy twist is a great present to give yourself for the holidays!

With alien reindeers you know you should expect anything. The one sure thing is the joy they will bring with them. Kaelar is one of the reilendeer (alien reindeers) and loves his job of spreading joy. Chloe is a doctor that works mostly in the children’s ward. Together the two make a great team. But when someone starts stealing joy they may have more than they can handle. A little adventure and plenty of romance.

A cute alien/human romance

This quick, well written book is perfect for all year round reading. The alien, looking like a reindeer is employed to distribute joy to those in need of it especially sick children. Problems arise when some other aliens invent a technology to steal joy. A love develops between the alien and the female doctor who work together to save the day. Light, heart warming read.

I picked this up for the premise alone - Christmas + alien reindeer who harvests joy + romance + children's hospital - and was expecting it to be terrible. However, it actually managed to sell this totally bonkers setup successfully enough that I now also kind of want to read about the alien Santa who employs the alien reindeer.

Ridiculous fun!

Didn't love, didn't hate it. Just OK for me. Kaelar an alien shifter reindeer who spreads joy to those who need it, meets Dr Chloe who spreads joy to patients. OK, a Hallmark movie it's not, a little to cheesy for me.

Received an ARC from Booksprout and this is my honest review.
