RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. The mates clearly have chemistry but the author provides enough conflict in this short story to make it interesting. Readers meet a lot of characters that provide a sense of who Donna and Paul are, adding depth to their characters. Then when they come together (in the woods!), it's majorly hot. And the sweet ending is the whipped cream on top of the strawberries.

Reviewer: Cat
Review” Due to a bad accident of her brother Donna Dancer has to come home to take his place pulling Santa’s Sleigh. Thirty years ago she knew her mate was Paul Rudolf, though he refused to acknowledge it and hurt her by rejecting her. She now has to face him at her Parent’s party.
This story was yet another cute sweet stories in this collection Reindeer Games.  I loved the story, especially the smokin hot love scene in the woods.
I recommend this story  to anyone that loves Reindeer, Unusual shifters, long lost romances rekindled, and hot sex.

Review:

I would have never thought I would look at Rudolf the red nosed reindeer this way.  Not that I minded, most certainly not.

I enjoyed reading Rudolf’s story, he was a very honorable man. He always thought first of his responsibilities and the rest came on the second place. He even put himself and his happiness on the second place, which unfortunately had resulted in a lonesome and loveless existence. Not from lack of attention though. Take Donna, she’s his mate and had always loved him but due to his responsibilities he rejected her and their bond. Causing them both heartache. But lately his life and work seemed empty and he had wished he could take back his rejection to Donna and their bond.

Just maybe he isn’t too late to make things right. I loved this short story, it was funny and I very touching at times. I would have liked to read more about Donna and Rudolf, too bad it was so short.

Excerpt

“You've been gone an awfully long time, sweet pea. We honestly didn't know if you would say yes.”

“I'm sorry, Daddy. I just...”

“I know, honey. Just don't go away that long ever again. Okay?”

“I promise.”

Donna looked around, searching from one face to another, trying to keep her gaze casual as she scanned the crowd for the only other man she desperately wanted to see.

One face blurred into another as she took the crowd in at a slow pace. After a few minutes of searching, she almost gave up. Then, she locked gazes with the one man who held her heart. The world shifted, causing her to stand uneasy on her feet. An overwhelming need to shift and run took over her body as she dropped her gaze from his eyes and handed her bag to her mother, giving her an ‘I need to get away’ look.

Without another word, she turned her back to the crowd and sprinted toward the woods behind the house. Her deer half wanted to run as much as her human half did, and just like every other time she was in her mate’s presence, she lost complete control and could only give in to what her body and soul needed.

Ditching her dress on a limb just outside the tree line, Donna let the change come over her swiftly. Muscles burned and bones reshaped as Donna went from human to deer. When the transformation was complete and she was standing at the forest’s edge, Donna opened her eyes and took in the cabin and people as they milled around. Kids played with each other at the waters edge while parents watched closely from where they visited, not far away.

Once upon a time, she envisioned herself doing that very thing with children of her very own. Without a mate, that future was impossible and it tore her up inside, knowing she wouldn't ever have that happiness.

With one last look at the party, she turned and sprinted through the forest. She didn't know where she was going but anywhere was better than here right now. The pain in her heart was almost too much to bear. But in the end, she loved Paul with her entire being, and if he'd have her, she would gladly forget all the heartbreak and spend forever in his arms.
