Tyla is a golden goose, creature of myth and legend. She gets a card in the mail and calls a transporter to get her out of her gilded cage and to the Crossroads.
Tyla has no experience with men, strangers, bright lights or loud noises. She is completely overwhelmed, and once she meets a man who is willing to make her dream of a mate come true, she comes down with a case of cold feet.
Arkenon enjoys travelling the world as one of the premier shifter tattoo artists. When he meets Tyla over a casual dinner, he is smitten with her shy looks but straightforward attitude. He enrolls at the Crossroads and pursues the woman he wants as a mate. He just has to work on defining his motives for both their sakes.

The Shifting Crossroads series is so addictive. For romantics, this is the series which will give nice warm fuzzies. This is because all the stories carry the same themes of love, family and loyalty.
In CHRISTMAS GOOSE, Tyla is the one who needs to learn about healthy family dynamics and love. Her family depends upon her, but they are neither loyal or loving. Instead, they rob her of a life and keep her under a punishing house arrest. Why?
Because she is the goose who lays the golden egg. Does she really lay an egg? No. She's more like the King Midas of the finance world. Her ability is pretty nifty and it is easy to see why her spoiled rotten family would fight to keep her. Too bad they treated her so poorly.
This Christmas theme story is heartwarming as Tyla learns to live a little. She meets her mate, Arkenon, at Crossroads and proceeds to see how other people interact and live. So many little things people take for granted, she experiences for the first time. She is a bit of the princess in a tower yet she doesn't want to be the damsel in distress saved by a knight. She wants to be free. Can Arkenon overcome his white knight complex and allow Tyla to spread her wings?
It looked a bit rough at first. Arkenon is jaded and thinks all women want when they go to Crossroads is to find a man to save them. Tyla is definitely a shock to him and wakes him up.
Ms. Masters does a lovely job of showing how good family dynamics can be. She excels at painting a romantic sweet picture for readers to moon over and enjoy. She is a romantic at heart which comes through clearly through these stories. The conflicts are realistic and the people are human, despite their shifter powers. All the characters possess flaws and that is what makes them endearing.
This paranormal romance is recommended for those who enjoy "love conquers all" theme.
