Dashing through the snow is no fun when you're running for your life...
For reindeer shifter Kaelar, Christmas means a lot more than caroling and hot chocolate. Without him and his fellow reindeer working for Santa, excess joy would go to waste instead of into the hearts of children who need it.
Kaelar is committed to the season and the work that comes with it—even when it means working against evil aliens whose mission is to vacuum away all the joy the reindeer fight to keep alive.
With the happiness of hundreds of children on his shoulders, murderous reindeer hunters on his tail, and a group of vicious aliens stealing joy, finding a mate is the last thing on Kaelar's mind.
Until he meets her.
Chloe is a doctor at a children's hospital, and while she wants to fall in love and have a family, her patients are her priority—so it feels like a gift when a mysterious reindeer shows up at the hospital and brings happiness to the children seemingly by magic.
Could the visitor be connected to the handsome, reindeer-costumed man who's been cheering up children around town? The man Chloe can't stop thinking about?
All Chloe knows is that the man seems to be counteracting a strange joylessness that has shrouded the town.
Can Kaelar save Chloe's town before it's too late? Or will Christmas be ruined forever?

Kaelar’s Joy is remarkable The fantastic and amazing thing about escapist entertainment is it can offer us a glimpse of another world, in this case, a world where beings like Kaelar can collect excess Joy, floating in the ether, and distribute it to those most in need. What a wonderful, and remarkable, holiday gift. Chloe, the Doctor Kaelar meets while on his rounds offers insight into how some spend their holidays — and why they might need a little of our excess joy. This done in one quick read is delightful and uplifting. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Chloe is a doctor in a hospital who tries to keep the seriously ill children in her care calm and as happy as they can be. Kaelar is a reindeer shifter and one of Santa's helpers. His role is to spread joy wherever he can. Naturally he and Chloe are brought together over their dedication to the children, and when another alien race attacks stealing all the joy to sell for profit, this has to be stopped! This is a sweet little story with a lot of love and joy and just enough lovin'!
I really enjoyed reading this book, it has a good storyline. The chemistry and interaction between the characters Chloe and Kaelar is wonderful. I can't wait for more from this author. I received this book as a FREE ARC copy to read and I voluntarily leave this review.
