"whimsical Wildside romantic fantasy"

The Saint traveled the planet spreading good cheer, encouraging love between people, and destroying evil. More renowned as Santa Claus he abruptly vanished over a hundred- sixty years ago, but finally in 2006 he has been found wandering the northern wastelands living amidst polar bears and suffering from total amnesia. The Fey assume most likely the Goblins, who hijacked Christmas and painted the Ho Ho Ho fat boy image, managed to slip him a Mickey; the drug Fed wiped out his memory. Currently he recovers in the fey community of Cadalach.

Appalled to know how the Goblins stole Christmas, Kris, as his friends and family call him, hires author Adora Navarra to write his biography though the writer's more popular works collect dust on library shelves. She, in turn, is concerned about accepting a job from an obvious nut case, but needs the money that his Armani suit represents. What really frightens her is her attraction to the lunatic who hired her. Adora begins to wonder if insanity is catching as she meets fey, dragons and goblins when he takes her to his hometown. She will soon learn this is only the tip of the magic iceberg as she plays a key role in an upcoming scenario.

Fans will enjoy this fun whimsical Wildside romantic fantasy that adds depth to the chronicles that so many readers appreciate. The story line is action-packed as Kris plans to regain his original image of a hunk not afraid to fight for what he believes is right. Interestingly he finds himself fascinated by the mortal, having given up human females centuries ago. The key to this superb fantasy is Adora, whose reactions seem so perfect from initially questioning her safety with her lunatic client to pondering whether insanity is catching to falling in love while battling at her beloved's side against Goblins. Melanie Jackson provides a delightful charmer.

Don't try his patience!

He knows if you've been naughty. He knows if you've been nice. What The Saint (aka Kris Kringle, Santa Claus, The Green Man) doesn't know is where Adora Navarra fits into his plans to take back Christmas from the goblin hordes.
