Dragon shifter and King of his people, Narjarni, wants to make his human wife of three years, Tara, happy by giving her the Christmas celebration she misses out on by living in his world. Sending some of his trusted men to find out about Christmas traditions, they set up a feast, complete with a Goose named Roger, to capture the Christmas spirit...or that's the plan at the very least...

King, King, Goose? is a short fun read (and it's free on amazon!) which I think introduces readers to the things that Roth does amazingly. Even in short stories such as this one, she manages to build a world, and in this case I haven't actually read any of the books from it!

One thing that I always thinks stands out in Roth's books is that the characters that aren't from Earth don't fully understand Earth customs, and as such they make mistakes and misunderstand things about them. This leads to funny comments and even some physical humour, which I love reading because it gives the book that something different.

The heat level in King, King, Goose? is a lot less than in most of Roth's books, though there are references to sex and other activities, but I didn't think it had anything lacking because of that, I enjoyed it all the same!
