ago, Angela Hudsonís best friend and sister, Tessa Winston,
fell in love and married an elf, Jedrick Lochlin. The
couple is expecting twins and Tessa is experiencing a
difficult pregnancy. So Angie is staying at the North Pole
to offer her nursing skills by assisting with the delivery.
Sheís also making the most of being close to Ardan Lochlin,
Tessaís scrumptious brother-in-law. As far as Angie is
concerned, heís perfect for her. Theyíre both passionate
about their careers, devoted to their family and determined
to use their skills to bring help to those in need of
So what the
heck is Ardanís problem?
no use for humans; he feels nothing but contempt for them.
Humans have no sense of honor, and Ardan is not willing to
risk his heart with one. He knows that Angie doesnít fit
into this category except for the fact that she is human.
Still, the harder he tries to resist being with her, the
more his elf instincts take over.
After reading The View from Santaís Sleigh, I didnít
guess that Lynn Crainís series could get steamier. Boy, was
I totally wrong! This author pulls out all the stops in
The Thing About Elves when it comes down to
boiling hot sex. Although they might be making toys at the
North Pole, Angie and Ardan are creating molten lava heat
between the sheets. The sex is so blistering that it could
increase global warming on a good loving scale.
Sex-on-more-sex, briefly aside, Iím charmed by it all. Ms.
Crain has managed to convey a strong sense of family,
tradition and a 365-days-a-year holiday vibe into the
narrative. The Lochlin family is large so itís major points
to the author that everyone is remarkable and interesting.
Throw in a liberal dash of Celtic lore, terms and phrases,
and it just keeps getting richer.
