***6,000 word short story prequel to The Airship Racing Chronicles***

Christmas Eve 1820.

At Rose's Hopper, a popular London tavern frequented by airship jockeys, all is merry and bright--except Lily Stargazer. Lily and her crew are set to run the Christmas Day Yuletide Airship Race from London to Calais, but not before spending the night swimming in mulled wine and longing for absent lovers.

Even the prospect of a Yuletide win can't convince Lily that this Christmas will be better than any that came before. But Lily is about to find out that there really is a Father Christmas. 
Join Lily Stargazer in this steampunk romance short story, a prequel to the steampunk romantic adventure series, The Airship Racing Chronicles.
