Last week, I asked if you were in the mood for a sexy, funny Halloween read. Well, everybody knows that the day after Halloween, the entire world shifts into Christmas mode. Right?
So now I get to ask: Who’s in the mood for a sexy, funny Vampire Romance that takes place over the Christmas holiday?
Allow me to suggest my very own THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS…
It’s like Halloween & Christmas all rolled into one! :happywitch:
Vampires turn to fanged and fabulous matchmaker extraordinaire Angelina Ricci to help them find that special someone to curl up with under the mistletoe in this charming (read: sexy) and delightful (read: funny) holiday collection by national bestselling author Heidi Betts. Because vampires need love, too. (Biting optional. Hot sex guaranteed.)
“All I Vant For Christmas”
Millionaire vampire Connor Drake loves trimming the tree, baking gingerbread cookies, and hanging the mistletoe for Christmas, but his Goth and gloomy vampire siblings won’t have anything to do with it. Enter Angelina, who sends party planner Jillian Parker to the rescue. But when Jillian—who’s mortal—discovers that she’s decking the halls for a family of vampires, will she run…or will Connor have a beautiful woman to share the holidays with?
“A Vampire in Her Stocking”
When Vivian learns that her secret crush, Sean, is terminally ill, she is heartbroken. Confiding in her matchmaking friend, Angelina recommends the obvious—give Sean eternal life by turning him into a vampire, too. But when Vivian refuses, Angelina decides to play Santa (with a side of Cupid) and changes Sean for her, leaving him wrapped in a bright red bow on Vivian’s doorstep…
“It’s A Wonderful Bite”
Although Angelina is happy with her longtime lover, Ian, she’s ready for a commitment. After drinking eggnog and watching It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve for the (literally) four millionth time, Angelina falls into a dream where she is mortal, and Ian is involved with someone else. Talk about the nightmare before Christmas! But Santa must have checked his list twice, because this Christmas, Angelina’s wishes are about to come true…
“The Bite Before Christmas is spicy, funny, and wickedly sexy. Each couple has different stories to tell and each is a compelling read. This anthology will keep you warm on those cold winter nights. It’s a delightful read.” ~Judy_F on BarnesandNoble.com
“Inventive, gently humorous, and fast paced, this steamy paranormal anthology offers an alternative to the typical holiday fare; perfect for readers who want their romances on the edgy side.” ~Library Journal
“You’ll truly enjoy this group of three delightful stories. Quick-moving stories with romance, laughter, and fun…all set near the Christmas holidays. Well-written, and all three stories stand alone while having connecting characters. Delightful!” ~Caroljane on Amazon.com
“Three great stories tied together in one book. Well developed, loved all of the characters. I will read more of Heidi’s books. Highly recommend this one. You wont be disappointed.” ~ss63 on BarnesandNoble.com
And once again, if you like your hot, sexy vampire romance read to you by someone else, THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is also available in audiobook!
Happy Reading, My Darlings! :offtoschool:
Confession #34: My mug collection is slightly out of control. :burningwitch:
It’s true—I’ve never met a novelty mug I didn’t love. My penchant tends to be for the nice, big solid ones that aren’t easily breakable (because I also tend to be a bit of a klutz, & when they’re wet & soapy, bad things tend to happen :skullbones: ) & hold a lot of tea. And cute; they have to be cute or amuse me in some way. :cheers:
During The Move, I actually sorted through all of my mugs & managed to part willingly with several…& not-so-willingly with a few more. But there are many, many, many I simply cannot part with.
And to make matters worse, last week I found this adorable Snow White mug at a local thrift shop. (Don’t worry, I scrubbed & Cloroxed it quite well before putting my lips on it. :screamcartoon: )
Come on! How could I possibly resist? :givemecandy: It’s a Disney Store original…made of nice, thick ceramic…is quite large & holds a lot of tea… And did I mention it’s Disney? (Another small obsession of mine, depending on the character.)
Of course, it happens to be a zodiac mug, & Virgo is so totally not my sign. But that didn’t keep me from buying it. Oh, no—I can overlook the incorrect star sign in exchange for simply having a shiny new mug to carry around. And look at Snow White loving all those little woodland creatures…that is totally me! The write-up on the back may not be 100% accurate, but it’s close enough…& even sort of encouraging. :bloodyeye:
But I will tell you this—if I ever spot a Scorpio Disney mug, I’ll definitely grab it. Because I’m dark & mysterious like Jack Skellington, too. :dracula:
