Vixen is an ice dragon shifter whose obsession with Christmas increases each day. Her clan’s village is located at the North Pole: the home of the one and only Santa Claus and his elves. She lives a life of carefree celebration until an attack from a vengeful dragon lands Vixen at the feet of her mate, a man who has never celebrated Christmas.
Lunar is from none other than the South Pole, the farthest place on Earth from Vixen’s beloved home. And as for her favorite holiday, he’s never joined in any of the human rituals surrounding it. If anything, he’s purposefully avoided them. Vixen must now take the reins and teach her mate all about the joyous time of year she celebrates year round.
Just when their relationship starts to blossom, Vixen is kidnapped and held for ransom. Lunar will stop at nothing to save her as his first Christmas draws near. After all, there is no place like home for the holidays.
First Christmas is a story about love and family. It's a clean YA Paranormal Romance. There is no swearing or sexual content. Any violence is mild and not graphic.
Vixen is a fun ice dragon who loves all things Christmas. Lunar, her unexpected mate could go either way on the holiday. I loved Vixen and her true love of Christmas. Everyone cares about her even if sometimes she gets into mischief with her two elf best friends, Holly and Jolly. Lunar isn't your typical hero. He takes some time to grow on you but he's well worth the wait. Lunar and Vixen together are hilarious at times and adorkable at others. They're a perfect match.
Heather Karn has the most unique paranormal stories I've ever read. First Christmas and her take on dragon shifters and their mates blew me away. If you're looking for something new and different in the shifter romance trope, then First Christmas is a must read.
Heather's desire to become an author hit in 8th grade when she wrote a short story as an assignment and she turned that story into her first novel. She graduated college with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, but after college she got discouraged and writing fell by the wayside for other hobbies, though she still dreamed of publishing one day.
She began reading YA fiction again in 2015, and her heart burned to start writing the stories in her head. It was then that she began The Weregal Chronicles, a YA paranormal romance series featuring tiger shifters. The setting of “Perfect Scents”, Book 1 is in West Virginia, a place Heather holds dear to her heart. Though she only lived there for a year, she will always consider it home.
Currently, Heather and her dog, Gunney, live in Wisconsin. He's a Pomeranian who loves to keep her company while she writes, and if she gets too distracted by her writing, he likes to remind her that he's still present. He's recently learned to love to play fetch, so it's their favorite distraction when she needs a break...or he does.
