Originally published in the Kiss of Christmas Magic anthology. Contains strong adult content and language.

When an unprecedented visit from the Supreme Elven King, Kirion, disrupts elven princess Miriel's usual plans during the winter solstice, it's the least of her worries when a single touch by the powerful king could reveal a secret she and her family have desperately kept for over a hundred years. However, King Kirion has a few revelations of his own that could also change Miriel's life forever.
