We’re so pleased to have author Leta Blake joining us today to celebrate her new holiday romance, Mr. Frosty Pants. She’s here to tell us a bit about the book and is also offering a giveaway, so be sure to check out all those details in the Rafflecopter widget below.
Can True Love Warm His Frozen Heart?
Thank you so much for having me here today to talk about my book Mr. Frosty Pants! I’m excited to tell you a little bit more about this book.
Mr. Frosty Pants is a full-length novel, clocking in at 95,000 words, which is, in the genre, considered a nice, meaty length. (* wink wink * See what I did there? LOL)
The title of the book refers to the grumpasaurus character of Joel Vreeland, a young man with a very wounded heart. He protects himself from further hurt, keeping folks away by being “frosty” to them.
Not that Joel doesn’t have a good reason to be frosty to the other main character, Casey Stevens. After all, they’d been childhood best friends before Casey ghosted him when he left for college. So our Mr. Frosty Pants has a solid reason to hold Casey at arms length.
Luckily for both of them, Casey is a stubborn and loving fellow, and Joel is capable of more forgiveness than expected. In the end, the book shows how love makes them stronger together, helps them grow and cut free from ties that are holding them back, and truly express the full love they are both capable of sharing.
Overtop some of these heavier topics is layered the spirit of Christmas! Complete with miracle snow, ice-skating, Christmas carols, and tree decorating! The book isn’t a light, fluffy Christmas read, but it’s deeply Christmas all the same: the celebration of the return of light in darkness, the blessing of love to those who don’t always deserve it, and overcoming obstacles to find a family of one’s own.
Thank you again for having me here to talk about Mr. Frosty Pants! I hope you enjoy it during this winter holiday!

Blurb: Can true love warm his frozen heart?
When Casey Stevens went away to college four years ago, he ghosted on his straight best friend, Joel Vreeland. He hoped time and distance would lessen the unrequited affection he felt, but all it did was make him miss Joel more. Home for the holidays, Casey hopes they might find a way to be friends again. But Joel’s frosty reception reminds Casey of just how hard he had to fight to be Joel’s friend in the first place. It’s going to take a Christmas miracle to get past that cool façade again.
Joel isn’t as straight as Casey believes, and his years of pining for Casey have left him hurting and alone, caring for his abusive father and struggling to get by. Unable to trust anyone except his rescue dog—and with no reason to believe Casey is interested in him for more than a holiday fling—Joel’s icy heart might shatter before it can thaw.
Can Casey and Joel’s love overcome mistrust, parental rejection, class differences, and four long years apart?
Mr. Frosty Pants is a stand-alone, Christmas gay romance by Leta Blake featuring a virgin hero, childhood friends-to-lovers, second chance romance, and steamy mm first times.

I loved this book so much!! The gorgeous characters and the little cosy home by the lake… Christmas perfection.
I have read this, and once I’d switched off my expectation that it would be full of tension and angst (like the other LB books I’ve read) it was a warm and cosy Christmas read.
