Reviewer:  Cat’s reviews
Review Cupid is a mail courier by day and one of Santa’s Reindeer once a year. With this secret  he  can’t have a real long term relationship he craves. Then an unexpected gift arrives….
This is such a cute little Christmas romp. I loved the English accent that came across in this story and the humorous style of writing.
I recommend this story to anyone that loves Christmas stories, Reindeer, unusual shifters, and a fun, short romp!

 

Story Excerpt

Cassius Cupid woke with a start, and then sat bolt upright in his bed. Shit, I'm going to be late! was his first thought.

Milliseconds later his brain switched on, and he remembered. He was on holiday. Flopping back onto the warm mattress and pillows with a contented sigh, he smiled. No work for fourteen whole days—it was going to be utter bliss. He stretched, relishing the feeling it created in his sleep-softened muscles. Ahhh...this is the life.

He knew he wouldn't go back to sleep—hell, it was eight o'clock, which was practically the middle of the day for someone in his profession—so Cassius fell to thinking about how he was going to spend his day, not to mention the several others in front of him. God knew he deserved to relax and have some fun. He'd just emerged from the busiest part of his year, and he was more than ready to do some chilling out.

He enjoyed his job as a postman—he really did—but the Christmas period was a total killer. He idly wondered how many cards and presents he'd delivered over the past few weeks. It didn't bear thinking about. Once you factored in the festive period itself, the weird few days between Christmas and New Year, and then the flurry of mail that got sent when everyone went back to work properly at the beginning of January, he'd racked up some serious deliveries. And that was before you even thought about his other job—which was for just one day a year, but was arguably more important than the other 364 put together.

Cassius—or Cupid, as he was known to his boss and colleagues in his second, but most important job—was not only a regular postman for the Royal Mail, but also a reindeer. For a single day of the year, Cassius had the supernatural power to transform into one of Santa's faithful steeds and help pull that famous magical sleigh, delivering presents to excited children the world over.

Therefore, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Cassius really did eat, sleep and breathe deliveries, but not for the next fourteen days. All he planned to do was watch some TV, read some books, maybe go out hiking, meet some friends... basically anything that wasn't delivering something to someone. Hey, he might even receive something through the post himself—preferably not the usual crap, bills and junk mail. He didn't hold out much hope.

He lounged in bed for another ten minutes before realising he was lying there just for the sake of it. Being on holiday didn't have to equal staying in bed all day—and certainly not for someone as active as him. He reached over to his bedside table, grabbed his glasses and put them on. Throwing off his thick duvet, he walked to his bedroom window and peeked out through the curtains, immediately glad of the effective central heating he and his housemate had forked out to have installed the previous year.
