I’ll get the nitty gritty out of the way. You met Blake Simpson in Evan the Virgin Reindeer & His Sexy Buck. He was a jerk. No. He went beyond that. He was the ultimate bastard and did some things that should have had him sent off to Abominable Island (the North Pole’s version of Hell) for life. But there was something going on with Blake. Sure, he was a bastard, and he did some pretty shady stuff.
What the readers didn’t know was why.
In Blake the Rogue Reindeer & His Cocky Human you see the real Blake Simpson. This isn’t the same reindeer you saw in Evan and Derek’s story. This is a better, drug-free version. Not only do you get to see the real Blake, you also get to see him find love – and with a human no less! The old Blake Simpson was human-phobic and didn’t believe in species mixing. This guy? Well, you’ll just have to read his story. Seth Grant, aka the human, brings out a side of Blake that I doubt he even knew existed.
The theme of this installment is two-fold. It’s about addiction/recovery and redemption.
From the world of Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer.
The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs. Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. Far from it, actually. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form and are respected by all.
Except Reindeer Blake Simpson, that is. Sure, he’s beautiful like the others, but all respect for him flew off with the snowflakes last Christmas. When the Chief Reindeer offers him a chance to redeem himself he jumps on it without hesitation. All he has to do is keep a special visitor occupied leading up to the busiest night of the year.
For the first time in history, an outsider will be allowed inside the North Pole. Not just any outsider, but a human and Blake Simpson has never been fond of them. But a deal is a deal. He’ll babysit the man and then get on with his life, now free of what caused him to self-destruct last year. When he meets Seth Grant sparks fly, and not just the good kind. Not only is he a human but he’s a cocky one who Blake has met before.
Sometimes the magic of the North Pole has a sense of humor. Could the rogue reindeer and cocky human actually be meant for each other? Or will they be over before they start as secrets of Blake’s past are revealed?
