Christmas with the Allens and Cages
Christmas, the happiest time of year, brings back memories of childhood, family, love and traditions. But for some, the memories may not be so pleasant. That’s the case for Parker “Shy” Cage and his brother Landon. Early in their lives, they suffered the brutally tragic loss of their parents, which led to years filled with heartaches...
“Me and Lan, we aren’t used to happy.”
However, in the bosom of the Allen family, Shy and Landon have found what was missing in their lives. They once again become part of a family - experiencing the joys of what it means...to love and be loved, to find peace and comfort, to share the good, the bad and to belong. It was heartwarming experiencing the Cage brothers relive their few happy memories through Rider and Cutter (Tack an Tyra’s boys). It rekindled a spark in their eyes and touched their souls. Shy finally finding his peace and comfort with Tabby and the Allen's, carrying out old traditions and beginning some new.
“Sometimes, something so beautiful happens, you can’t process it and it builds up inside so big, you can’t do anything but cry.”
Having a glimpse into anything Tack, is a special treat. He is the ultimate KA alpha - the top literary motorcycle dude for me (Really... he IS the sexiest, sweetest, gentlest, badass growler - YUM). Tack will make you laugh, with all his wise cracks and cursing on Christmas Day, as well as melt you heart with all his sugary sweetness.
Tyra, the family matriarch, is still the feisty smart-ass red head, who barely manages to keep everyone in line.
"Nothing, is more important than family. So it's a blessing when that family grows. Shy, Lan, welcome to our family”.
