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!
Yes I am aware that it is not Christmas, but I have never been bothered with reading holiday themed books any time of year. I really love Cynthia Eden so I was excited to read this one. For a shorter story she really packed in the emotion. My heart was breaking for Ben and I found myself almost crying a few times. Adding a paranormal twist to a classic Christmas tale is just the kind of thing to spruce up this old tale. While this book didn’t grab me and hold me hostage, I did enjoy the story. I’d really like to read more about the other characters as well. Maybe Ms. Eden will give us more in another book.
