(Book) Holiday With A Vampire: Christmas Cravings\Fate Calls by Maureen Child Maureen Child and Caridad Pineiro


My friend, Dy, who is also in my book club decided to be a smart ass and chose this book for our December book. We usually try to pick something holiday-ish. So yeah, we read a vampire romance. I actually wasn’t going to read it because romance is so totally not my thing, but I decided to be a good sport and read it. So yeah, I read this kind of under duress.

Both stories are short and easy to read, I read the whole book in an afternoon.

The first story had some promise. Until the author just decided “eh, let’s end it… right… oh, I don’t know… here”. Um. What? She built this great back story with all these great places to go and then met her word count and shut it all down.

The second one was just okay too. I guess if you are into vampire romance, you’d like it, but the whole blood and sex thing just doesn’t do it for me. Plus, vampires are always described as being cold and/or hard as a statue. I dunno about you ladies, but I really don’t want to cuddle up to a marble cold statue all night. Gimme a squishy real man anytime (one that doesn’t bite is just a bonus).

Any way, if you are into vampire romances, this is for you, I suppose. It was very reasonably priced on the kindle, so maybe worth a read. And for extra fun, this seems to be a series, with 2 more books after it. I think I will be skipping it though.

Product Description
‘TIS THE SEASON TO TAKE A WALK ON THE DARK SIDE…Silhouette Nocturne is proud to present these two sensual, heartwarming tales of love during the holiday season. True, the heroes may not wear red suits or be very jolly. But tall, dark and handsome, with the unusual power to thrill, can sometimes be the best gift of all.

In Christmas Cravings by Maureen Child, a vampire finds himself in need of a miracle, and discovers it on the doorstep of his childhood home in the form of Theresa Franklin. Most women dream of being swept off their feet by a man–not whisked away by a devastatingly handsome vampire. But for Connie Morales in Fate Calls by Caridad Pineiro, Hadrian’s tempting kisses make her long to deliver the gift of life to a man who thinks he has no soul…
