Quad Shot of Love


Blurb:  Garnet Evergreen has never heard of an elf abandoning the North Pole for a human, but he yearns to be the first. Ever since he saw Wes, the boy with sorrowful eyes, Garnet felt an undeniable kinship. Over the years, he’s watched that boy grow into a man, and now he’s determined to give Wes a Christmas he’ll never forget. If only Garnet had thought to test his father’s sleigh before leaving…

Orphaned as a child, Wes spends every Christmas alone at his cabin. When he’s woken by a suspicious boom and finds a wrecked sleigh and an unconscious elf, he doesn’t know how to react. Wes isn’t fanciful. He doesn’t give much credence to the stories about Santa Claus and flying reindeer. But a part of him wants desperately to believe when Garnet promises forever, even if life has taught him that no one ever stays…


Review:  This story is so much fun. Sweet and romantic it pulls at the heartstrings.

Garnet has known that he wanted to make a life with Wes for a long time and he’s finally taken the leap to run away from the North Pole to do it. Now he just has to convince Wes that they’re meant for each other before he runs out of time. 

Wes is so isolated when Garnet comes crashing into his life. He didn’t know how much he needed this special elf, and he’s afraid to believe that he could have this love for himself. But if he has the courage and the faith he just might get the best Christmas gift of his life. 

A charming short story full of Christmas magic and impossible love. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it be added to your holiday collection.
