Review of "Ribbon of Darkness" (The Trouble With Elves) by Decadent Kane

What's New to Review~ Wednesday!

Good morning, everyone! Welcome to week 2 of "What's New to Review" here at Pen-the-Dream. Last week's day was such a success, and I am so thankful for all you that popped by. I hope that you enjoyed last weeks review of "The Cowboy's Christmas Auction." I certainly enjoyed reading it and I hope you got the chance to pick up a copy for yourself!

Today's Treat!

This past week, I was lucky enough to be asked to review an amazing new title and the first in a series. "Ribbon of Darkness" (The Trouble with Elves) is a short novella that had me in stitches at some of the Christmas lingo that the author has used in creative new ways. First lets get a few things straight. These Christmas elves are like none you have ever seen. They can blend in with human folk, and are comparable to our height and likeness. I mean, they don't even grow into their ears until they are in their twenties... and that is exactly where our story begins!

Ribbon knows nothing of her heritage and that she is a Christmas elf, she only knows that her parents are a little obsessed about Christmas and have some very strange rituals. When her ears blossom over night, her mother lets her in on the secret and throws Ribbon's  life into chaos.

To add insult to injury, her parents are rogue Christmas elves who left without permission, and a Secret Santa Spy, Draven, is after them to bring them home. After meeting this hunk of an elf, Ribbon can't seem to think of a reason why she shouldn't go. Being wrapped up in his arms is all she seems to be thinking about.

The verdict?

The chase and excitement of this novella keeps you turning the page! Perfect for an hour lunch break if you are a quick reader, and well worth the price. The best part? This is the 1st in the series~! Decadent Kane will be releasing book 2 in February! I can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve! I really enjoyed the author's writing style, the heat, and the creativity that Ms. Kane has used. I will definitely read it again and I highly recommend it for anyone!

It's a "Five Cups of Love" Read!

Want your own copy? Here you go!~ only$1.99

 See you guys next Wednesday. Yes, it will be Christmas. But, I will still be here helping you decide what new hot romance you want added to your new E-reader! Happy Holidays everyone!
