Book Description:

“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.”

See what I mean? Definitely a book to err… keep you warm for the holidays! 😉 Michele has written up a guest blog to tell us about the two books she has out this month. There’s also a giveaway at the end of the post! So I’ll pass the reins over to Michele for a bit.


What a busy month!  With Halloween just around the corner, as an author, it’s kind of a thrill to have a vampire book out this month.  But I happen to have two books out this month, which is a strangely cool abundance of vampy delight.  Both are novellas featured in anthologies with three other authors.  The first, Monsters Don’t Do Christmas, is in A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS.  I know, a bit early, right?  But it’s never too early to start dreaming about what you’d like in your Xmas stocking, and if it has fangs all the better, yes?  This story introduces two new characters to my Beautiful Creatures world, the hero being a newly-turned vampire who is still struggling with the whole ‘monster-ness’ of what he’s become. 

The second story, Cruel Enchantment, is in CRAVE THE NIGHT, and isn’t holiday themed, but rather most of the stories are set in the authors’ current world.  Mine features Revin Parker and Sabrina Kriss, who appeared in Her Vampire Husband.  I’ve been wanting to write a little more on Bree for a long time, and knew she would eventually get together with Rev, but that it wouldn’t be easy for either of them.  Bree is a faery, and if you’ve read books in my world, you know faeries and vampires don’t really make for the best match, seeing as faery dust is addictive to vampires.  But can you become addicted to a person?  I think it’s possible, and so, explored that as well.

If you’re new to my world, you can pick up any book and read it, and it stands alone.  You don’t have to read one book before another to understand what is going on.  And if you like a character and want to find out if they show up in other stories, stop by Club Scarlet for all the details and terms from the Beautiful Creatures world.

So tell me, are you wishing for that vampire in your stocking?  Or maybe you prefer something a little more wolfish? 😉



  Thanks Michele!! 🙂

  1. I’d go for a werewolf because we could spend daylight hours together.

  2. I am still in the sampling stage of reading paranormal/urban fiction. Of what little I have read, shifters have been my favorites. Some versions of vampires are interesting. Every author has their own world and rules, so they can be either bad or good or a combination of both. There are bad shifters, too, but as a whole, I’ll still go with them. I guess I like someone a bit more warm blooded and someone who is a “normal” person some of the time.

  3. I think I would prefer wolves or panthers, I love vampires in Christine Feehan books though-so protective (I guess they are really Carpathians). edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

  4. Hi!
    Hmmm I don’t know which one I would choose… I love both of them…. I love the sun but I don’t like hairy guy… LOL I think I would go for the vampire for the blood sucking experience and eternal life! Instead the werewolf is like one of Kresley Cole werewolves!

  5. Yes, I’d love a vampire in my stocking because I think I’d have a really great evening with a sexy vampire. I’m a night owl, so that would work out just fine.
    I’m looking forward to reading A Vampire for Christmas, it sounds like a fantastic anthology.

  7. I’ll have to go with ‘A Vampire for Christmas’. ‘And they don’t care if you’ve been naughty or nice.’ That’s an awesome line, and vampires are dang sexy. 🙂
