Outlaw grizzly shifter, Trigger Massey, has been on the naughty list most of his life, but things are different now. He’s got a new mate, is in a race to save his ranch, and is the brand-new alpha of the Two Claws Clan. Add to that, his mate, Ava, has a serious problem with Christmas, and Trigger has his work cut out for him. This is his first Christmas as leader of his Clan, and he’s taken it as a personal challenge to make it perfect. The only problem? Ava never wanted perfect. 

Ava Dorset just needs to get through December, set up her business, save the ranch, and be the best mate she can be to Trigger. He’s a big brawler, who raises his fists first and asks questions later. They’re fresh out of a war with the local cougar clan and looking to stay on the straight-and-narrow until she can get their business off the ground, but the boys find trouble wherever they go and they’re demolishing her plans. All she needs to do is get their focus off the holiday, and back on saving the ranch, but the more Trigger works to get her holiday spirit back, the more she thinks perhaps December isn’t so bad. 

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

T. S. Joyce just delivered an amazing gift to her readers in A Very Outlaw Christmas.  Even if you don’t follow the series, or even if you only came across this title because it falls under Christmas Romance, the truth is that this story will touch your emotions because at the base is one simple thing… love.

Ava hasn’t had the easiest life, and after her dad left her and her brother, Colton, days before Christmas when they were kids she’s turned her back on anything Christmas.  Where once she delighted in the holiday, now she tries her best to ignore the things happening around her each December.  Now she’s reunited with her brother, has found her true love in bear shifter Trigger, a man who has always had her back and has a make shift family of outcast outlaws… life is good.  But she still intends to hide from Christmas.  Only the man who loves her isn’t going to let that happen.

Trigger may not have always had the greatest life but he knew his dad loved him and had his back.  Their Christmas traditions were simple but special to them.  Now with his father’s passing Trigger’s been facing those traditions alone.  Finding Ava again, being the luckiest guy on the planet to have her as his mate makes this Christmas pretty much a miracle.  Until he learns just how much Ava hates Christmas.  No, not happening on his watch.  He has her back and he has her heart – and he’ll find a way to bring Christmas back for her again.  He has to because making his mate happy is the gift he gives every day of the year but especially at Christmas.

A Very Outlaw Christmas is a loving, charming, funny and yes sexy story that brings out all those feel good emotions.  Trigger loves Ava with everything he has to give and then some.  Her dislike of Christmas stems from hurt, and he cannot stand to see his mate hurting so he sets out to fix it in the most charming, truly shifter kind of way.  I adored this story, and I believe you will too no matter the genre you read.  Higly recommend this one and a thanks to T. S. Joyce for the Christmas present that this story truly is.
