2018 Dreamspinner Press Advent Daily Delivery Anthology
Being gay and pagan can make for a lonely holiday season, as Ian knows well. He’s used to celebrating alone. The last place he expects to meet a like-minded guy is at LAX during a twenty-nine-hour layover.
Ian’s never felt so comfortable or compatible with another man, even if there is an air of mystery to Race.
Race is no stranger to holiday isolation, and he decides they should seize the opportunity they’ve been given and observe the Saturnalia the way it was meant to be. A grand celebration ensues, where every moment is special and every meal a feast. The ancient traditions take on new meaning as the men find meaning in each other. But each of them has a destiny and for their paths to continue together, it’ll take a kind of magic that hasn’t been seen in centuries.
Wicked Reads: 5 stars from Angela! She says: And while I enjoyed watching Ian and Race meet and spend time together, I was awestruck when the twist was revealed and Ian was offered the choice of a lifetime. It was one of the most unexpected happy endings I’ve ever read, which is probably why I loved it so much. Read the complete review.
Rainbow Book Reviews: Christy Duke gives 4 stars and says: I very much loved the way this story was written and how it all played out. By the time the end neared I had guessed what was to come but that certainly didn’t detract from my enjoyment. Horace (Race) Gaea is a very complex individual and he and Ian certainly deserved their happy ending. Read the complete review.
Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words: Chaos Moondrawn give 4.25 stars and says: There is a real connection between them, but Race is not who he seems to be. Read the complete review.
Gay Book Reviews: Crabby Patty gives 5 stars: Bottom line – I loved this unusual unexpected holiday story from Elizabeth Noble. From the very first page, we think we know what is going to happen and the tension builds as each chapter gives us a countdown of how many hours are left to eternity. But what happens between the expected and unexpected is wonderfully done. Read the complete review.
