Vampire for Christmas
It was one last mission. Shannon, a demon hunter with the agency, is looking forward to leaving behind the small town and the vampire she’s been stuck with for the past two years. Things are getting complicated fast and she wants out. A fresh start, free of her vampire partner, awaits her if she can survive their final mission and the lonely Christmas holidays.
It was one last mission. Rafe, a vampire doing time with the agency, watches it approach with dread weighing heavily in his stomach. Two years of working with Shannon has been difficult, especially since he started falling for her, but he doesn’t want their partnership to end. He has barely a few days to make her face her feelings and stop her from leaving, and he intends to do just that.
When a slimy demon threatens the season of peace and goodwill, it’s the chance Rafe has been waiting for and the moment Shannon secretly fears. Rafe’s determination to prise open her heart and her own resolve to keep it closed clash as violently as they do with the demon, and threatens to end as messily.
Can Rafe make Shannon see that his love for her is real and that she feels something for him too? Can Shannon face her fears and her past, and stop herself from running away from both? Will a wish on a star bring her what her heart truly desires—a vampire for Christmas?
In the spirit of cleaning out my ebooks and getting into the holiday mood, I binge read a few holiday novellas I’ve been holding on to for a few years. Here are my quick thoughts on them.
I wish I had not waited so long to read Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton. It was a great mix of action, humor, and romance to fill that paranormal void. Rafe and Shannon made me think of other couples where the heroine is a vampire hunter and the guy is a vampire. Like Buffy/Spike and Cat/Bones. Their love wasn’t meant to be and yet their two years working together, hunting demons side by side gave them both something the other was missing. It was great to see this couple get a HEA. Even though Vampire for Christmas is a short novella about two characters I have never read about, Heaton made me connect with them and really care about what happened to them.The Naughty List by Kate Eden

Being naughty has never felt so nice!
You accept an invitation to an exclusive Christmas party in the hopes you’ll get your stocking filled. But at this party, Santa’s only got presents for girls on the naughty list. You’ll never look at candy canes the same way again.
I had so much fun reading The Naughty List by Kate Eden (Jaye Wells). I have never read a “choose your own adventure” type read before. At the end of each chapter you have a choice to make and depending on which choose you make you are led to the next chapter in the very short but extremely hot read.
Since I had so much fun with the format of the story I’m giving it an extra star. I enjoyed it so much that I went back and read the other chooses. LOL Let’s just say the Naughty List was more fun than the Nice List and it was naughty enough.
Sadly this title and the two others in the “series” are no longer available.
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).
