With the wedding of Jack Frost and Rudy Rein Dear only three weeks away, everyone travels to Jack’s palace in Svalbard, Norway, where the happy couple will exchange vows beneath the northern lights. Festivities have been planned leading up to the wedding, and Dasher eagerly anticipates not just the fun, but staying under the same roof as the blustering winter spirit who’s caught his eye—the King of Frost, Jack’s father.
A long-ago tragedy has left Eirik fearing to ever love again. As the King of Frost, Eirik maintains his distance from everyone, especially the young Christmas elf who insists on intruding on Eirik’s solitude. But Dasher is determined to find a way to show the lonely king that his heart still beats and he shouldn’t fear allowing it to beat for another.
I’m seriously not ready for this holiday series to end. I found it late, as I often do, but there are so many little things I love about this series. Charlie Cochet, as always brings such a world to me that I never could have dreamed up.
One of the things I love most about this series (which I know is weird, but I don’t care) is the “cursing”. This author knows curse words, inventive ones, if you need proof just read a few of Ash’s curses at Dex, or the other way around, in her THIRDS series. Meanwhile, all these men are so sweet, and come from such a sweet place, curses are things like “Crabapples!” or something equally sweet.
But honestly, even the dark moments don’t last long, despite these being novellas. There is so much love and joy, that even when Dasher’s deceased beloved returns to create some havoc, it takes the appearance of love to help bring happiness back to all the people in the wedding party.
And always there is an HEA. I loved that these two men had very similar pasts, and it brought them together, even as Eirick fought it for years.
I’m not ready for this series to go away, but honestly, I could probably say that about any series Charlie would write. As long as I get to keep reading all her men, I’m happy.
