The holidays suck. Stephanie used to love them back when her father was alive, but this year it is just her, a mountain top, some hot cocoa and a star he made. Her sister could not even be bothered to accompany her this year. So when she falls off the mountain and into the frozen stream, she is pretty sure she is done for. Her last thoughts are how hard this is going to be on her little sister,losing another member of her family at Christmas time.
The holidays suck, literally. Thomas goes into the mountains to his first home, to hide from the blood lust that is worse at this time of year, for solitude. Long ago he was tricked by a woman and became what he is today because he tried to rescue her. Now, finding a woman nearly drowned and frozen in the same river, he is torn between biting her and nibbling at the delicious bits that warming her up reveals.
Stuck in his cabin by an encroaching storm, these two dynamic characters must battle the elements and their elemental need for each other. Will they make a holiday to be remembered or will they do something they will regret? Will they manage to change the sad memories of past holidays into something sweet or will the only thing sweet be the taste of her blood on his animalistic lips?
An erotic vampire tale told in comedic and realistic tones, this holiday treat is one to be savored. Stephanie stayed a spirited and frank character throughout the story, and Thomas was everything you want a vampire to be, broody, handsome, but with that little bit of animal that is unleashed in the heat of passion and controlled by his iron will. This story is a gift to be enjoyed again and again!
