Always on the run and alone, Betsy Samuel never believed she would ever have a family, much less be mated. With scars covering her body and her heart, Betsy decides to trust the three warriors who seem to be working their way into her heart. But would they be able to accept all her hang-ups and the fact she has two other children out there somewhere? Would her Christmas be everything she dreamed of?
Barry Zorn had failed his weru once before and he wasn't about to fail his meru. The small woman, Lacey's little sister, had a wall of stone around her heart, but he and his werus were bound and determined to tear the wall down and surround her with love, even if it meant catching a tiger by her tail.
But could they give her the best gift possible, her missing children and the Christmas she's always dreamed of? London, a city of history, is the site of their bonding, but would it also be the birthplace of a new era for their large family and heal recent wounds for the women that have given their hearts to these worriers?

I think A Christmas Tail by Trinity Blacio is my favorite story in the Masters of the Cats series.  It is definitely best having read this story in chronological order otherwise you may be a bit confused coming into this series cold. 
I adored Barry, Davis and Orion, Betsy’s mates.  Betsy is damaged and they understand her, better than even she realizes.  I loved that they were willing to give her time to accept what they will be to her.  She has no fond memories of sex and her men are patient with her as she learns to trust in them.  I also loved that they immediately accepted her children as theirs.  There was no question that they would help her find her children and take on the responsibility of being a father or in this case fathers. 
Ms. Blacio did not make Betsy a wimpy woman.  For all her issues, Betsy had a spine of steel and understood herself even if she struggled to like herself.  But she was determined to move beyond being a victim which I found impressive.  I thought Betsy was well matched with her men and I loved how Ms. Blacio allowed the budding family to learn the fine art of compromise. 
This story was well written and full of holiday cheer and references without being over the top.  I loved the antics of the women and found myself laughing out loud.  I am a fan of this series and this author and I am looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
