Like your favorite Hallmark Christmas movie...only way more gay.
An alpha dragon in denial...
Sebastian Wallace spread his wings (literally) and left Vale Valley for business school in the city the moment he was able. Ambitious and full of big ideas, he wanted to find his own place in the world. With an MBA under his belt and a startup business venture in New York, things are looking up. Until he gets the call that his mother has passed away and left him The Dozing Dragon, her bed and breakfast, in the will. Sebastian returns to his hometown, hoping to make it a quick trip. But when he reconnects with a sweet omega in the Valley, everything changes.
A haunted omega...
Will Sterling can see things no one should. In a town full of shifters and other paranormals, you'd think seeing ghosts would be no biggie. Afraid of his own power, Will does his best to live a "normal" life and keeps himself busy at the local garden shop. But things are starting to change in Vale Valley. The yearly Festival of Lights ended five years ago when faulty wiring sent the place up in flames. And now The Dozing Dragon's sudden closure fills Will with dread for what might come next. When the owner's son returns to town, dare he hope for a better future?
With Sebastian's help, can they save the Dozing Dragon and bring back the Festival of Lights in time for Christmas? And does Will's secret power hold the key to both?
Mated Under The Mistletoe is the first book in a multi-author series about Vale Valley, a small town open to everyone in need of love and a home. It contains way too many dirty jokes, plants with a mind of their own, mpreg, and more sweets than Willy Wonka's factory. Pull up a chair, grab your hot cocoa, and settle in for this heartwarming holiday read!

Like my favorite Hallmark Christmas movie but way more gay? Count me IN! If Connor was looking for a way to hook me in, he found it. If they had gay Hallmark movies, I'd be ALL. OVER. THAT! All the sweet, fluffy gay kisses. Is it too much to ask for some sweet gay kisses? *Sigh* Am I the only one?
Sorry, got off topic but sweet gay kisses! Can you blame me?
Back to business!
Sebastian is cray cray. I mean, what kind of dragon wants to live as a basic human? Cray cray! You're a dragon! That's awesome! How boring to suppress your instincts and live as a stupid, boring human in a stuffy office. Boo for Sebastian. Let your dragon out, dude!
I found it kind of sad that even in Vale Valley with shifters and other paranormals, Will feels like a freak for seeing ghosts.
Sebastian left Vale Valley and his mother years ago. His mother's death brings him back. Among dealing with his regrets of not coming back to see his mother before she died, he stumbles upon his mate in Will. Sebastian is forced to make to choice. Does he stay in Vale Valley with his mate and save The Dozing Dragon? Or does his drag his mate back to the city where he'd be miserable and save his company? He doesn't have the money to do both.
The underlying theme of this book is that leap you have to take to be who you truly are. To accept who and what you are. Both Sebastian and Will had parts of themselves they couldn't accept and spent good portions of their lives doing everything they could to hide and run from them. Together, they found love, acceptance, and happiness. It's a great fluffy story. A perfect Christmas read!
P.S. I am legit watching a Hallmark moving while writing this review, lol. If only it was a gay romance. *sigh*
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I live and breathe MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never get enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course.
