A Vampire's Christmas Carol by Cynthia Eden is a cute holiday novella that, true to its title, leans heavily on Dickens classic tale.
Ben is a vampire on the edge of being evil. Ever since he was turned and he lost the woman he loved, Ben has hunted human predators. But his beliefs on the rightness of his kills comes into question when a demon whose life he saved shows up on Christmas Eve. Can Ben see the error of his ways if other supernatural creatures show him his past, present, and future?
One of those supernatural creatures is Simone - the woman Ben thought dead for the last decade. Turns out she was an angel who turned vampire that night rather than dying. Simone makes a sacrifice for Ben's second chance - but will he take it?
Despite its short length, Eden packs a lot into A Vampire's Christmas Carol. We get the full treatment of the Dickens classic with her paranormal twist and interesting secondary characters that leave you wanting more of their story to go with Ben and Simone.
If you are looking for a quick holiday themed read and like paranormal romance, I'd definitely recommend A Vampire's Christmas Carol.
This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.
But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.
‘Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms…
Warning: This story features one very tortured vampire, a sexy ghost from his past, and hot scenes designed to melt the winter snow. Plenty of action, adult situations, and steamy times are ahead. Happy holidays!
