Twelve elves left the North Pole to be free of all things Christmas and have been living together for decades. They have gone without their mates for years, but when the first of the twelve finds his, the others have hope of finding theirs.
Champ is an elf that hates cookies and the way his friends treat him for loving food. When Champ meets Ali—the man who he loves so much more than food—he realizes he must fight to keep the mate he treasures safe.
Ali is a remarkable chef stuck in a rut working for a man that thinks he owns Ali. When Ali meets Champ, the bond they share gives him the strength to find a way out.
Will the risk that Ali takes pay off, or will it have irreversible repercussions that could destroy Champ and Ali’s love as it is just beginning to grow?
