A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2019 Advent Calendar collection Homemade for the Holidays.
The Blurb: last thing Wilhelm expects to find at Michaels, three days before Christmas and in search of a gift to make for his niece, is one of Santa’s elves—a cute one with a wicked, inappropriate sense of humor and a kinky streak. Alabastair may have been kicked out of Santa’s village, but he’s still a Christmas expert. And he’s determined to give Wilhelm and his family the best holiday he can.
With only two days to turn the Grinch’s house into a Christmassy wonderland, they have a lot on their plate. Among the glitter and the cheer, Wilhelm and Alabastair might find more than just the holiday’s magic. But will it be enough to keep Alabastair in Wilhelm’s bed and life when the North Pole calls him back?

Alabastair & Wilhelm
An excommunicated elf with a heart of gold and a dirty mind. An inept crafter albeit successful construction business owner, on a mission to make a homemade gift for his four year old niece…THREE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS! This may end like a glitter bomb of epic proportions or the two could blend as smoothly together as chocolate and peanut butter in a batch of buckeyes.
I fell in love with this author’s writing when I read, “From Brussels, With Love.” Calirel is also the only author I chose to read and review for this advent anthology that I was already familiar with. When her name popped up I snatched faster than greedy hands at Wal-Mart on Black Friday!
This story was so cute and chuckle worthy. The back and forth banter between Al and Wilhelm was so funny and even naughty at times. It also had sweet moments as the two men shared their darkest moments and grew closer.
There are no explicit scenes, just lots of naughty and nice one liners.
