A novella from the best-selling Belador series.
For Tristan, holidays rate just above having his fingernails ripped off. He was a fool once over a woman - a human, no less! - and that little moment of insanity got him imprisoned for four long years. He's never had someone special to share the holidays with and doubts he ever will, but December does matter to the other half-blood Belador Alterants stuck alongside him on Treoir Island. To help his friends, Tristan has been secretly teleporting them to Atlanta for short visits. Sure, the Belador goddess warned him not to teleport in and out of Treoir's hidden realm without her permission, but she ranks below holidays for Tristan. Screw her.
Tristan's secret trips are going great until Elaine "Mac" Mackenzie, the five-foot-six, red-haired genius he vowed to pay back for the four years he lost, steps between him and a powerful sorcerer with a deadly agenda. If Tristan exposes his preternatural abilities in the human world, he'll forfeit his freedom forever.
Saving Mac may destroy his world, but once he has her back in his arms, no one else is going to touch her.
