Werewolf Leroy Sangrille has been waiting for the right moment to break some bad news to his human boyfriend, Jordan Williams. Finally, Leroy informs Jordan that they have been invited to Leroy’s parents’ place for Christmas. Since Leroy had spent the holidays with Jordan’s family in prior years, Jordan was excited to meet the werewolf clan. Little did Leroy or Jordan know they were in for quite a few surprises.

A Sangrille Christmas is a fascinating romance with an out-of-the-ordinary plot. The setting is Melbourne, Australia. The characters are unique. Leroy ran away from home two years ago, because he was powerless to deal with his father's cruelty. Jordan had given Leroy a home, as well as nursed Leroy back to health, resulting in a sexually energetic relationship between them. Leroy knew the invitation from his Alpha mother was a command, which he dare not disregard. Although the card read, “Leroy Sangrille and partner are cordially invited to this year’s Christmas Day howling at the Sangrille estate”, Jordan is shocked by the hostility directed at Leroy upon their arrival. Leroy and Jordan are expected to join in the hunt, which is a problem for Jordan since he is human. As the plot unfolds, Leroy discovers the real reason why his father was so abusive. Leroy and Jordan discover the secrets of Leroy’s past, in addition to Mother Sangrille’s plans. Jordan also realizes that the main course of the feast does not agree with his delicate sensibilities or his palate. Mark Alders has created a remarkable, as well as enjoyable, saga with a few disguised and intriguing shockers incorporated.
