Christmas With A Bite: A House of Elysian novel by Patricia, A. Wolf

Christmas with a Bite (Entangled Covet)A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint… 

'Sometimes the holidays totally bite... 

This Christmas, Mara Livingston is determined to start over. But as she's driving to her "new" home, a freak winter storm forces her off the road. Now she's stranded in the middle of nowhere. Then he shows up. And there's something strangely familiar about him... 

Connor Reece never expected to see Mara again. Nor is he prepared for the onslaught of emotions―including an unimaginable rush of desire―she stirs within him. Now he has a chance to claim the woman he's always wanted. Except, there are a couple of small details that Mara doesn't know. The first is that Connor is a vampire. And the second is that if his family finds out about Mara, she will most certainly be killed.'

Mara is newly divorced and on her way home for the Christmas holidays and mark the beginning of a new phase in her life. 
Connor is a vampire living in self inflicted isolation in an attempt to atone for past sins.

Little did either of them know the degree to which things would change after Connor rescues and looks after Mara. 
Most of us would have an image of vampires as being scary, blood thirsty killers. But Connor is almost the complete antithesis of this. He is a sensitive soul. His family on the other hand are creepy.

Being in a relationship with a human would not normally be a huge issue for vampires but because Connor is from a royal family and next in line, this puts a different spin on things when he realises that he has fallen in love with Mara.

This is a nice romantic Christmas read with a vampire twist. There is nice interplay between the two protagonists and enjoyed their back story. I was expecting some intense suspense in relation to Connor's family because that is the way the story is set up. However, it didn't materialise. I would have preferred more drama to have played out but it was all tied up very prettily in the end.

The story is kept very light and romantic. This is perfect reading for those who want a light romantic story with a vampire twist!

This title is available from the 15th of December.
