Holly loves everything about Christmas, from Angels and Carols to Yule logs and zany gifts.
This year she is working as one of Santa’s Helpers at the mall, entertaining young children while waiting in line to have their picture taken with the big guy in the red suit.
Then suddenly, her world tilts right off its axis, as a real-life elf pops out of nowhere to punish her for using magic in public! Cane resents his current assignment into the mortal world to discipline the halfling. She must either return to Kringleton with him, or he will have no choice but to bind her powers – which is permanent and not to be taken lightly. However, the halfling doesn’t even seem to realize her elvish heritage! And worst of all, she is lovely beyond all compare.
He resents his attraction to her. Still, a job is a job and he wasn’t appointed headmaster for nothing. He will be thorough in her chastisement, and then he will be done with her! But neither Cane’s strict adherence to rules, nor Holly’s blitheful ignorance of them, can keep the two apart when fate has destined their future.
Of course, a bit of magic never hurts!
