Blurb: North Pole City Tales: Book Three
Rein Dear is a prestigious title, accompanied by admiration, devotion, and celebrity status, all of which one saucy Vixen thrives on. Alas, Vixen’s only concerned with having fun, unlike his stuffy and sensible best friend, Rudy Rein Dear, who Vixen has always been jealous of. Aside from being chosen by Mayor Kringle to be captain of the Rein Dear Squadron, Rudy’s managed to snag himself a prince, even if that prince is the dangerous and imposing Jack Frost.
All’s not lost for Vixen though. He discovers Jack’s cousin Vale has a soft spot for him. Vale Frost might not be a dashing prince, but he’s the next best thing: a decorated lieutenant for the Toy Soldier Army, and a member of the Frost monarchy.
Determined to get what Vixen feels he deserves, he sets off on a mission to ensnare the kind-hearted lieutenant. But Vixen’s selfish ways are sure to lead to disaster, and it’ll take more than a little courage to set things right.
Review: I love this series. It’s so much fun with an interesting and adorable world full of Christmas magic.
I was a little nervous about what a brat Vixen was when the story started. He was so angry and selfish that I worried for sweet Vale’s heart. But as always Charlie Cochet created a delightful story of love and personal growth that was fun fantasy and romantic. There was much more to Vixen than his reputation or smart mouth would lead one to believe.
Vale was adorable. Large and powerful yet shy and considerate. His sweet and gentle wooing of Vixen helped to change a selfish heart into one that was aware of its many blessings.
I enjoyed seeing all of our favorite characters from the previous stories as well as getting more insight into the Frost family. I loved Vale’s dad and his supportive love for his sons. He knew who they were and loved them dearly.
A story of faith, hope, love, family, letting go of the past, being brave, Christmas spirit, and holiday magic. A wonderful addition to a great Holiday series. I’m looking forward to next year’s new story.
