A Winter Starr

Alien Reindeer: Winter Starr 2019

The authors of Starr Huntress were given a challenge: give readers a reindeer shifter in your holiday story. We all agreed to call our shifters “reilendeer” and decided they bring good cheer to the world around them… and then we went crazy! You might notice differences about the world and abilities of the reilendeer from story to story, and that’s because each author has put her own spin on the challenge.

The Alien Reindeer’s Wild Ride

She’ll be home for Christmas… even if she has to steal a ship to get there!
Rowan has missed out on the last three big family holidays, and she’s determined not to miss another. Holiday travel is always a mess, and even worse when she needs to get from Mars to Minnesota. Every flight is booked through the New Year and things aren’t looking good. Until someone whispers the name Dashiel Blitz and gives her a bit of holiday hope.

He just wants to spread good cheer…
Dash makes a life shepherding sick children from planet to planet so they can be with their parents or get medical treatment. Rowan isn’t like his usual passengers, but his soul sings when they meet and he can’t say no. She’s on his ship for a ride, but he wants even more.

One tiny problem…
Dash isn’t just a pilot. He’s a reindeer shifter and he needs to keep that a secret if he wants to stay safe. But if Rowan is his mate she needs to know the truth. And when a delay in their trip threatens to strand her on the wrong side of Earth, he may have to reveal himself in the most dramatic way possible.

Could a determined human woman want an alien shifter for a mate? Or will their wild ride end with a crash and burn?

The Alien Reindeer’s Bounty

Mads + Odessa = 4EVA

Except forever ended when Mads kissed Odessa, bit her and then ghosted her.
Twelve years later, he’s back and looking to pick up where they left off.
Um, no thank you. Odessa has more to think about than her own heart. She’s now a single mom and can’t afford to get involved with a man with a track record of vanishing.
It doesn’t matter that he’s haunted her dreams for years. Or that when they’re together, she feels like she can finally breathe. And it certainly doesn’t matter that her traitorous body craves his touch.
Besides, Mads hoards secrets like they’re made of chocolate.
One, he’s an alien shifter. Like he turns into a reindeer with antlers and everything.
Two, that bite made them bonded mates.
And the third secret is the most dangerous of all.
How can they have a second-chance at love when the sins of the past threaten to tear them apart?

Now it’s time to grab your eggnog, cuddle up by the fire, and enjoy these steamy alien shifters.

The Alien Reindeer’s Joy

Dashing through the snow is no fun when you’re running for your life…
For reindeer shifter Kaelar, Christmas means a lot more than caroling and hot chocolate. Without him and his fellow reindeer working for Santa, excess joy would go to waste instead of into the hearts of children who need it.

Kaelar is committed to the season and the work that comes with it—even when it means working against evil aliens whose mission is to vacuum away all the joy the reindeer fight to keep alive.

With the happiness of hundreds of children on his shoulders, murderous reindeer hunters on his tail, and a group of vicious aliens stealing joy, finding a mate is the last thing on Kaelar’s mind.

Until he meets her.

Chloe is a doctor at a children’s hospital, and while she wants to fall in love and have a family, her patients are her priority—so it feels like a gift when a mysterious reindeer shows up at the hospital and brings happiness to the children seemingly by magic.

Could the visitor be connected to the handsome, reindeer-costumed man who’s been cheering up children around town? The man Chloe can’t stop thinking about?

All Chloe knows is that the man seems to be counteracting a strange joylessness that has shrouded the town.

Can Kaelar save Chloe’s town before it’s too late? Or will Christmas be ruined forever?

The Alien Reindeer’s Redemption

Warrior Rylant doesn’t want anything to do with Earth or the barbarians on its surface.

He’s there to complete his mission. Get in, retrieve the lost Vondin tech, get out.
Then maybe his superior officers will get off his case about not being a team player. 


He didn’t count on a grey eyed goddess crossing his path.
Needing his help. Setting his blood on fire.

Until all he knows is he’s on her team. No matter what.

Single mother Megan just wants to get her little girl back.

Strange men? Totally off the table. No matter how hot they are. Or nice they seems.
She’s learned long ago trusting is for suckers.

But when the only way to get to the madman holding her baby hostage is to trust a stranger, can she let him in through the walls she’s built around her heart?

The Alien Reindeer’s Christmas Package

Delivering gifts to a human colony world was supposed to be an easy job. And it would be, if not for the invaders stealing anything Christmas related — which means shooting Dhannar down to take his cargo.

But it’s worth crashing on this ball of ice to meet Megan. The human female is everything Dhannar hoped for: beautiful and bold, smart and sassy. The moment he sees her Dhannar knows that Megan is his fated mate.

Now there’s something even more important than his mission. Protecting Megan is his priority — protecting her and claiming her as his. Even if it means facing down an entire alien invasion.

She should be spending Christmas celebrating with her family. Instead, Megan’s running from alien invaders who want to steal the holidays. Her only hope is Dhannar, the reindeer shifter who crashed in her path. An incredibly hot reindeer shifter who seems to think she belongs to him.

He’s powerful, dominant, strong and sexy, and huge. He’s fighting the aliens who’re after her. And he wants her to be his mate.

Megan may not know exactly what that means, but she expects she’d enjoy finding out!

The Alien Reindeer’s Escape

Elzarr comes to Alaska, the last place he expects to meet anyone. He wants the freedom to run wild and free and be who he is. When he trots right up to Piper Stone as she’s gathering firewood for her cabin, he’s instantly mesmerized with the beautiful human. And the feeling is likewise, only she thinks he’s just a majestic reindeer.

Imagine what she thinks when she’s falling from her roof only to land in the arms of a naked and very sexy mountain man, during a snow storm.

The Alien Reindeer’s Winter Cabin

Did Santa bring me my Fated Mate?​
When I retired from pulling Santa’s sleigh, my only desire is to settle down in a mountain cabin on a little planet called Earth and never talk to anyone again. That is until I’m hit by a car during a blizzard. When I meet the gorgeous, curvy angel who was driving the car, I immediately want to put her on top of my Christmas tree.​

But other aliens have made their way to Earth, too. The kind who destroys entire planets. The only way to protect Holly would be to leave her behind and force the monsters to follow me. That isn’t going to happen, though. Nothing is going to come between my mate and me.​

All I want is a freaking jolly Christmas!​
My holiday cheer is put to the test when I’m robbed at work on Christmas Eve and forget about my parents’ anniversary party. Dashing through the snow, things take a turn for the worse when I hit something. Then the crazy naked man who’d been running through the woods yells at me. I’d kill him if I could stop myself from staring at his breathtaking body.​

If this fool of a reindeer shifter thinks I’m going to let him save Christmas from the other aliens all by himself, I’ll have to kiss some sense into him. We’re like a good pair of winter mittens, complete opposites but a perfect pair when we’re together.​

The Alien Reindeer’s Christmas Miracle

Janice White loved Christmas, and taking a holiday trip to Finland was a dream come true. With her team in tow, including the jerk who always challenged her every decision, she set out to find Christmas legends for her doctorate dissertation.

What she found was love at first sight.

Oskar Halfardsson was a Reilendeer, an alien living below Luosto Fell in a village his kind built away from the prying eyes of humans. When the group of Americans showed up in a nearby village, Oskar set out to spread joy and cheer. Legend has it that Reilendeer were known for such jovial traditions which fed their spirits.

With one look at Janice, Oskar knew without a doubt that he’d met his mate.

All he had to do was convince her that some legends are real and need protected, and that he was the protector for her.

The Alien Reindeer’s Wish

When I wished for everything I wanted, I meant finally leaving Earth. The universe sent me her instead…

Elle is on a secret mission.

Her best friend thinks they’re on vacation in this cutesie Christmas-themed village to relax and have fun. Fun? Elle doesn’t remember the meaning of the word. She’s here to write the most shocking, interesting, scary and weird articles the internet has ever seen.

And right now that means uncovering the mystery of the monster of Seven Pines.

Enter Braxen. Ridiculously, snowmeltingly, handsome toymaker. Secret alien. He would actually prefer you use his name over ‘monster of Seven Pines’, thank you very much.

Elle wants this story at all costs, and Braxen wants to protect his identity even more. Everything would be so simple if they could just stay away from each other.

But sometimes you don’t always get what you wished for…

The Alien Reindeer’s Flight

A broken warrior. A woman clinging to life. A Christmas miracle uniting fated mates.

Haj’erel of Thule is his people’s greatest fear: a failed warrior. Forbidden to serve. Forbidden to return. Forbidden to love. Maimed and abandoned on Earth, he discovers a woman clinging to life alone in a frozen wasteland.

A woman destined to be his mate. Is she his redemption or his final punishment?

All Audrey Pope wants for Christmas is one last hot chocolate with her baby sister, but instead she stumbles upon an. . .alien reindeer?
