Larry Kincaid isn’t ready to be a parent, but when his sister dies in an accident, he takes his nephew, Angus, into his home. The change throws Larry’s life into limbo until he meets Joshua Langdon.
To Joshua, Larry is a lion: growly and strong, but too proud to ask for help. Joshua gets past his defenses and finds a place in Larry and Angus’ family, but Larry’s pride gets in the way. Can they turn their holiday romance into a relationship that lasts into the New Year?
Originally from the 2013 Advent Calendar Series by Dreamspinner, this is a short, sweet Holiday story about a single “dad”, Uncle Larry who ends up raising his nephew after his only sister dies in a car crash. He meets a very cute, very single Joshua at the Tux shop where he and his nephew, Angus, are renting clothes for Larry’s big party.
Though Larry is afraid of including someone new to his and Angus’ life, Joshua is pretty irresistible.
Due to the story’s brevity, there’s not much relationship building, so this is more of a look at the beginning of a relationship, than anything else. There’s very little angst, a bit of hot smexy times and a lovely HFN/epilogue for our guys!

KC Kelly does a great job with this. I love his “kids” voices and Angus is adorable!
There isn’t much different between Joshua or Larry and I kind of wanted Joshua to be a bit “younger” sounding. However, he’s an easy narrator to fall into and definitely gives deep emotion to this light, sweet story.
