As I get ready to decorate my house for the holidays, I keep wondering if we should retire the ten-year-old fake tree with weirdly bent branches and get a new fake tree, one that’s pre-lit. The thought of not stringing all those lights sounds heavenly!
After sending my husband out to the garage to bring in all those boxes of decorations, I’ll go through everything and decide what I’m going to use—much like Charlotte did in the Sweetblood short story Enchanted By Blood, in the anthology A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS.
As the owner of an interior decorating/event planning business, Charlotte Grant specializes in holiday parties. Christmas is a special time of year for her, not only because of the type of work she does, but she loves the glitter, the glamour, and the tradition of the holiday season.
But she yearns for someone special to share it with: Someone to meander through Seattle’s eclectic neighborhoods with her and window shop. Someone who enjoys the same things she does—sushi, old Aerosmith tunes, watching golf on TV even though she doesn’t play. Someone whose family would welcome her in, since she misses hers terribly.
One evening early in the holiday season, after being ditched by a friend, everything changes for Charlotte when a handsome, well-dressed stranger steps into her path.
Former Guardian Trace Westfalen is set to take over his father’s seat on the Governing Council, but he won’t be voted in if he’s in a relationship with a human.
Charlotte feels an odd connection to the man who hired her to decorate his home for a big holiday party, but she’s never met him before…or has she?
As the holidays approach and danger closes in, Trace has a difficult decision to make. Does he follow his duty and let Charlotte go or does he follow his heart and risk losing everything…including the woman he loves?
I’m giving away a copy of A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS to a random commenter who tells me what their favorite holiday decoration is.
Happy holidays, everyone! And happy decorating!
All they want for Christmas is you…
It's the time of year for twinkling lights on trees and kisses under the mistletoe. Yet the passing of another year means nothing to the stunning immortals who lurk in the shadows of the new-fallen snow.
And they don't care if you've been naughty or nice.
Let four fanged lovers open your eyes to a passion you never dared to imagine. After all, there's no place like home for the holidays—and these dazzling vampires can't wait for an invitation.
