Originally appeared in the print anthology The Bite Before Christmas.

'Tis the season to join Cat and Bones for some holiday cheer in this Night Huntress novella by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost.

They were looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as "normal" as it gets for vampires Cat and Bones and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a mysterious stranger shows up and reveals long-buried secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer … and lives.

Cat and Bones along with most of the gang are celebrating Bones’ birthday in this short story when something goes wrong. Like an attack on Annette and a long lost family member shows up.

I loved this short so much more than the last full length novel, One Grave at a Time. We Cat and Ian working together to save the rest of the gang which was just a hoot.

He unzipped his pants and tugged them down. I whirled just in time, barking, “I don’t care what you think, your junk does not have special abilities. And I already heard about the piercing,” over my shoulder.

Not much can be said without spoilers but just know that fans of Frost’s Night Huntress series MUST read this novella.

Plus there is an excerpt at the back for Once Burned, Vlad’s book that is due to release in the spring. YIPPEE!

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I loved this novella too! I’m not sure if I’d go so far as to say that it was better than the last book though! 😛

    I might take you up on your offer for to co-host an event next year. I originally had one for Holiday Foreplay but it didn’t work out. Thanks for volunteering. 😛
