Reindeer Games offers a quick enjoyable holiday read for those who enjoy gay paranormal.
Lon is an elf in a North Pole you don't remember from your childhood days. Jet Mykles takes a modern spin on the North Pole activities including a politically correct view on sexuality.
Lon thinks he's in love with reindeer shifter "Dasher". In his human form he's Rom. The leader of Santa's sleigh reindeer. Lon doesn't think that Rom has even noticed him and after a couple of embarrassing episodes his chances aren't looking any better.
Reindeer shifter "Dancer" has his eye on Lon. When in his human form he's Wod and Wod knows he wants Lon, but also comes to realize that Lon is in love with Rom. What's a reindeer to do but help Lon get the shifter of his dreams. But is that what Lon really wants after he gets to know Wod?
A "Not Quite Christmas" Story
Rom is Dasher, the leader of Santa’s shape-shifting team of reindeer. He is the quintessential elf -- smart, handsome, charming -- and everyone in Santa’s Village wants him. Lon is no exception. He’s hopelessly in love with Rom, but how can he hope to get Rom’s attention? Even if he is now one of the reindeer handlers, he’s still just a plain, ordinary elf, and painfully shy to boot.
Then there’s Wod. As Dancer, he’s both Rom’s second in command and Rom’s best friend. He, too, is devilishly handsome but in a darker and -- truth be told -- slightly frightening way. At least, he makes Lon’s heart race and his tongue tie in knots.
When Wod unexpectedly offers to help Lon gain Rom’s attention, Lon is completely confused. To make matters worse, Wod is clear that he’d love to play with Lon himself.
Lon is used to the sexual freedom in Santa’s Village but he craves something more meaningful. He wants a real relationship. So what does he do? Keep pining for Rom or play Wod's special brand of reindeer games?
