Blogversary Author Post & Giveaway: Dylan the Bad Boy Reindeer & His Virtuous Mate, Candi Kay


It’s that time of year again. On Top Down Under is celebrating another anniversary. Yay! Congrats on 6 amazing years!

You know what other time it is? It’s when the elves and reindeer in the North Pole start getting naughty and wanting their stories told. Santa Claus is very particular about keeping things secret. I mean, he is the Santa Claus after all. It’s not like the rest of the world has been privy to a whole lot over the past few generations. Look at the fairy tales written about Santa and his flying reindeer. People still believe he’s this jolly old man with a long white beard. Trust me when I say there’s nothing remotely jolly about the guy, and he doesn’t look a day over thirty-five. And dare I even mention the Mrs. Claus that the world believes is sweet and makes sugar cookies? Ha! That ho, I mean woman, probably doesn’t know where her kitchen is, much less how to turn on an oven. The word sweet has never been in her vocabulary. She gives new meaning to Santa’s Ho! Ho! Ho!

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), Elf Willy has other ideas. He wants everybody to have what he and Chief Reindeer Randy have. If that involves sticking his little elf nose in things that don’t concern him, what of it? Is it his fault that he just happened to see Reindeer Dylan and Reindeer Cole making goo-goo eyes at each other during the Christmas party last year before Dylan took off? I think not. It’s been a year and they’ve still not gotten off their hot reindeer butts and found each other again. Heck, they don’t even know the other one’s name. Willy can’t have that. He’s determined to hook these hottie reindeer up come hell or Peppermint Whiskey. Of course, there will be some challenges. Cole is the most straight-laced reindeer he’s ever met. And, Dylan? Well, he’s a bad boy who lives and works in the worst part of the North Pole. Mistletoe Hill may be fun and games for those wanting to take a quick ride on the wild side, but it’s not exactly Cole Crawford’s kind of place. How can they meet when they’re a gazillion and thirty-two miles away from each other?

Ah, but then fate gets involved and Willy makes it his elfly duty to bring these two reindeer together once and for all. Sure, there might be a little drama involved in doing so, and maybe even a nip or twelve of Peppermint Whiskey, but the elf is determined, damn it. What Willy doesn’t know as he starts his matchmaking mission is that there are some powerful people who will stop at nothing to make sure certain secrets stay hidden – especially those involving the big man himself.


To help celebrate On Top Down Under’s 6th year, I’m giving away an e-copy of one book (winner’s choice) from the Willy the Kinky Elf series, including the upcoming Dylan the Bad Boy Reindeer & His Virtuous Mate. Willy has also offered to throw in one of his “Santa is a butt head” magnets to the winner. Not interested in Willy’s world? The winner will have the option of receiving the complete Taking Lance series (combined into one e-book – over 170,000 words) in the format of their choice. The magnet will go to the winner regardless of what book they choose if they’re interested.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post before midnight Oct 28th, US EST, and a winner will be chosen at random and notified via email. You’ll have 48 hours to respond back or another winner will be selected. Good luck to all who enter!

Congrats to On Top Down Under on 6 years and a huge thank you for the support you’ve given me since I published my first book! I’ll forever be grateful.




From the world of Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer.

The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs. Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. Far from it, actually. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form and are respected by all.

Reindeer Dylan is the ultimate bad boy – wearing leather, riding a motorcycle, having sex anytime he wants. Forced to run away as a teen, he’s had to fight for survival. Now twenty-five, Dylan lives in Mistletoe Hill, the one place in the North Pole that’s not eggnog and sugar cookies.

When Santa’s wife promises to share information about Dylan’s long-missing mother, he reluctantly escorts her to the annual Christmas party to make Santa jealous. What he doesn’t expect is to see a reindeer who’ll have him wanting something he’s never wanted before. Scared of what he’s feeling, he leaves, not even knowing the reindeer’s name.

Cole Crawford is one of the North Pole’s most respected citizens. Not one for random hookups, when he locks eyes with Mrs. Claus’ date at the party, he’s convinced he’s found his mate. But then the reindeer bolts, leaving Cole wondering if he’ll ever see him again.

When Mrs. Claus breaks her promise, Dylan contacts the Chief Reindeer and his elf for help locating his mother. Unfortunately, there are powerful people who’ll stop at nothing to ensure that certain secrets stay buried. Elf Willy just wants to play matchmaker and drink his Peppermint Whiskey. After witnessing the look between Dylan and Cole last Christmas, he makes it his elfly duty to bring them together.
