Nikki knows what it is to lose those you love. With her focus on her orphaned sister, she hasn't given herself the chance to process her own grief over the loss of their parents. Life is chaos and the last complication she needs is a mate.

A lion alone for too long ...

Joe Miller knows chaos. Being orphaned as a child, he's never had a family to call his own. Crashing with a friend for the holidays, he's hoodwinked into playing Santa Claus at a local mall. The last thing on his mind is finding a mate.

A love worth the risk ...

With her baby sister on her hip, sadness in her eyes, and a longing in her heart, Nikki waits in line with her sister to see Santa. From the moment he scents her, Joe is in deep. It's going to take everything he has to convince Nikki the love outweighs the risk to her heart. Luckily for Joe, he has fate and Nikki's adorable baby sister on his side. After all, who can say no to the Purrfect Santa at Christmas?

Joe and Nikki's story is sweet and warm and hopeful and pretty much everything you want in a Christmas romance. Joe's filling in for Santa at the mall and Nikki's in line so her little sister can see Santa. Even from a distance, they scent one another and know what they are to one another. Joe isn't deterred by the fact that Nikki's sister comes with her, neither is he put off by her resistance to the mating instinct. Nikki is prickly and wary. She doesn't want anyone in her life who's going to leave like her parents did, who'll end up crushing her and her sister Sarah's hearts and spirits more than they already are. *** Nikki kept unloading ornaments until Joe came and knelt down beside her. “Why do I get this feeling you’re not as thrilled as Sarah is about the tree?” Unable to look at him for fear of crying, Nikki kept her eyes on the box in front of her. “You can’t buy our love, Joe.” Two fingers tipped her face his way and she stared into his determined face. “Not trying to buy your love, babe. What I am trying to do is give my girls a good Christmas. There’s a difference and I hope you can see that.” Leaning toward him, Nikki whispered, “Promise me you’re not going to hurt us, Joe. Promise me that if I let you in to mine and Sarah’s lives that you’re not going to leave us. Because I don’t think either of us can take that sort of pain again.” Joe reached out and cradled her face in his big hands. “You accept me, accept our mating, and there’s nothing that can take me away from you or Sarah. Promise you that, sweetheart.” *** This is such a poignant moment in their story. The loss Sarah and Nikki feel is present throughout the story but this moment between Nikki and Joe highlights the underlying emotion that is mentioned but not really voiced: fear. I love that Joe is tender in this moment and giving so much of himself to Nikki with just a few words. Joe's gentle persistence pays off. He breaks through the walls Nikki's built and earns the right to claim her as his mate and Sarah as his family. The gift of claiming and loving is the perfect end for this Christmas story.

Purrfect Santa is a hot, steamy, fun novella. I have read other books in the Howls Romance series and this one is a perfect addition to the group of books. Jessie Lane and Chasity Bowlin have managed to take a short story and making it seem longer, more depth to the story, and more fun that some longer books that I have read. I always think that it can’t be easy to write a novella, yet these two have it figured out. There was just enough depth and development to not feel that anything has been left out or that any of the story is missing. I felt like I was able to get to know the characters enough to be invested in their lives. I could feel the heat between Nikki and Joe, I could feel the love, and I could feel their relationship grow, becoming real and steady. Of course, I’d love more just like I should after any good book is over but I was happy with the entire book. I’d recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun, sexy, hot shifter novella. Purrfect Santa is a great quick holiday read.

4.5 Stars This is such a cute holiday read. Nikki's little sister is just too adorable. To me this was a perfect read to get into the holiday spirit. Some of my favorite scenes are with Joe, Nikki, and Sarah. They're such heartwarming moments. I'm a big fan of Joe. I liked the way he treated Nikki and Sarah. Two shifters will get the ultimate Christmas gift if Nikki can risk her heart.

First time reading these authors and just loved it. Watching the heroine evolve was both frustrating and year worthy. Will read more from them.

Purrfect Santa is a feel good holiday quickie. Joe Miller is fresh out of the military and hanging out with a friend while he makes plans. He didn’t expect to find his mate but now that he has he will do whatever is necessary. Nikki has been through so much change in the last six months. Her parents were killed and she now has custody of her three year old sister. She doesn’t have time for a mate. Maybe just maybe they can find a Christmas miracle together. Not great art but a sweet read that will leave you with a smile and feeling good.
