Alex Ross can’t catch a break when it comes to Christmastime. With a long history of bad holiday experiences—like getting rejected under the mistletoe or playing referee to his mother’s divorce—he’s just trying to survive it.

New in town and a stranger to everyone, he plans on ignoring the holiday altogether. That would be easier if his ridiculously cheerful new neighbor would cool it on the Christmas hype. Nicholas is annoying and loud. Worst of all, he’s also impossibly attractive and nice to everyone. It’s getting harder for Alex to deny his interest, especially when Nicholas leaves Christmas cookies at his door and wages a snowball fight against him on the coldest day of the year.

Can Alex open up to him and get into the holiday spirit before he endures another ruined Christmas?

Meeting Santa by katychan666

Meeting Santa by katychan666

Magnus takes Max and Rafael to meet Santa, who is being played by Alec under a glamour, at the Institute. Max is beyond excited, but Rafael is skeptical. Will Santa be able to convince Rafe that he's real, and will Alec make it through through the day surrounded by a bunch of screaming kids?

This story is so heart warming! I even felt my eyes get a little misty at times. The Lightwood-Bane family is so adorable and I know that you will enjoy this cute one-shot as much as I did! Highly recommended!

This adorable artwork by AdriCarrollart is exactly how I envisioned Max and Rafe in this story!

p.s. I'd also like to take a moment to say rest in peace to Godfrey Gao, who passed away earlier today. He played Magnus in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and will be missed (1984-2019). 💔😢

Blog Tour: A Boyfriend for Christmas by Jay Northcote

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design

Archie's posh parents want him to meet a nice girl--how can he tell them he's fallen for a bad boy instead?

Closeted, innocent and lonely, Archie Arandale longs for someone special in his life. A Christmas party organised by his wealth management company is the last place he expects to meet the man of his dreams.

With his leather jacket, tattoos, and piercings, Cal Turner turns heads the moment he walks through the door. He definitely isn't looking for a boyfriend, but Archie's hesitant charm captures his attention, and sneaking off during the party to have a little fun can only make a dull evening more interesting.

After their reckless and thrilling encounter, Archie is keen for more experience and Cal is happy to oblige. The need for secrecy means this can only be a casual fling, yet as they spend time together in the run up to Christmas, their feelings become more intense than either of them had bargained for. How can Archie find the courage to tell his family about Cal, when Cal's the exact opposite of the 'nice girl' they've been hoping for?

Contains: A closeted virgin, a tattooed biker, class differences, a dramatic coming out, a very inappropriate Christmas gift, and a happy ending (of course).
