Her Christmas Phoenix by Zoe Chant

All she wants for Christmas is a sizzling hot shifter… and a flock of movie-quoting penguins.

Avery loves working in Antarctica, but when she winds up spending the holidays alone at her research station, it’s hard to find any Christmas cheer. Then there’s the cascade of unwanted–and unclothed–photos guys on her dating site keep sending her. (Of all the things in the world to deck with boughs of holly…)

It’s been a rough year. She just wanted something merry and bright.

He’s her perfect gift. She’s his perfect match.

Ice phoenix Emmett Frost is used to being alone for the holidays… and the non-holidays. He’s the guardian of all Antarctica, and that’s a duty he’ll never give up. So that means being lonely, right? No one else would want to spend their life at the South Pole. At least he can talk to all the Antarctic animals… although turning the penguins into big movie fans might have been a mistake. (Who knew they’d wind up so obsessed with Alfred Hitchcock?)

Then he meets Avery, a smart, curvy penguin researcher who blows his mind. Emmett’s just supposed to keep her company for Christmas, but soon he wants to keep her company forever. She’s his true mate, and he has to figure out how to tell her—and how to start believing he might deserve her.

It would all be easier if they didn’t have to deal with opinionated penguins and a rampaging polar bear that doesn’t seem to realize it’s on the wrong continent. But then, the holidays are busy for everyone…

This is a Stand-Alone Title in the Zoe Chant Universe… although, there are always possibilities. 🙂

This is an adult 18+ title.  It contains language, violence, and sexual situations geared toward a mature audience.

A Shifter for Christmas by T. S. Joyce

Kieran Dunne isn’t worried about the holidays. They will come and go, and he will be left with a big property tax bill from the estate he inherited. His brother finds a newly-listed job in the paper that could match Kieran’s unique abilities. A woman has put an ad out for a shifter for Christmas, and the pay would cover his bills. She’s asked for a non-predator shifter, but he can lie just a little. What could it hurt? He’s just supposed to babysit a crazy lady during the holidays, and then collect his pay and move on with his life. But when he meets Leslie, it’s clear this job is more complicated than he’d anticipated. She isn’t what he thought at all. And the more he understands of her life, the more he doesn’t want to leave her at the conclusion of Christmas Day, as their contract requires.

Leslie Wilson wants to bring a man home for the holidays. She’s tired of ruining her family’s annual parties with her single-ness. She wants a teammate this year to face the Wilson family with her. All her life, her last name has cast a long shadow over her life. All she wants is a simple life, but her family has different plans for her. And what better rebellion than bringing a date to the holiday celebrations than hiring a real-life shifter? Her sister’s fancy husbands might be rich, but they don’t turn into animals. It’s a simple contract, but when Kieran shows up at her door, she realizes fast that there is nothing simple about her feelings for him. Now she must walk the line this holiday season—pretend to be in love without actually falling in love.

And if she can accomplish that? She just might make it to New Years’ still human.

Jingle bells and magic spells

Daniella has everything she needs for a quiet Christmas at home with her dog, Fabio. She’s got way too much food, a real Christmas tree, a cable station streaming non-stop holiday movies, and even fruitcake. All she needs now is an ornament for her tree…

But what she gets instead is a glass dragon imprisoning a gorgeous naked guy from another world.

Trey, fae dragon knight, protector of the realm, and defender of the fallen crown, has finally been released from his spell by a kiss from a beautiful woman (and her noble hound). His power hobbled, his dragon form embarrassingly small, he finds himself navigating a strange world of wonders like televisions, refrigerators, and ham sandwiches, absolutely enspelled by a woman who swears she isn’t a witch.

Then Trey discovers that the enemy from his homeworld is starting to spill into Daniella’s and it will take power he no longer has to protect her… a power that is locked in Daniella’s heart.

Grim Christmas by T. S. Joyce

Grim is trying to hold it together for the holidays. He’s vowed to be a better Alpha for the Rogue Pride Crew, but he’s at war with the two lions inside of him, and at war with a certain Red Dragon as well. He was raised to be a weapon and had never celebrated like everyone else. All he wants to do is coast straight through the holiday, but his new Crew is messing with his head. He wants to hate them, but little by little, they are chipping away at his heart. Especially his new mate, Ash, who is so sweet about making it the perfect day. 

Ashlynn Kane is bound and determined to make Grim’s first Christmas outside of the Tarian Pride the happiest day of his life. The only problem is, her new lion shifter mate is a bit of a scrooge. With a can-do attitude and some mishaps along the way, she is going to do her best to make the man she loves feel special. Even if it means going against her Alpha’s wishes. 

Naked mole rats, talking pebbles, and baby donkeys, oh my. Ash won’t stop until Grim believes in Christmas again.

Tropical Christmas Stag by Zoe Chant

She can bring music to his silent heart.
He can make her sing.
 

Irish elk shifter Conall Wright loved Christmas… when he could still hear the music that brought him joy and fame. Then a fateful car accident stripped him of his hearing and brought his classical music career to a halt. Now, he’s looking for a place for the holiday that isn’t full of silver bells and singing Santas to remind him of everything he’s lost, and Shifting Sands Resort looks like it might be just the tropical escape he’s hoping for. 

At least there won’t be snow. 

Gizelle doesn’t know who she is or where she came from before she was rescued from the clutches of a madman who kept her caged in a shifter menagerie. She only knows that the world is a strange and frightening place, and as much as she wants to belong, it’s much easier simply to be a gazelle and run away. Meeting her mate is just another way she fails at every attempt to be normal. 

In love with a woman who won’t let him touch her, Conall has to choose between the business that he built following the onset of his deafness and an unpredictable life in a quirky place full of mysteries and unexpected friendships. Can he win Gizelle’s trust… and her heart? Can he convince her she doesn’t have to sleep in the shower? 

And can either of them ever truly stop running?

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