For the first time ever, the leader of the Viking Vampire Angels, Vikar Sigurdsson, has been talked into celebrating a traditional Christmas! The tree has been decorated, the gifts have been wrapped, and the stockings have been hung. And that's mistletoe, not cobwebs, hanging from the ceiling of the creepy castle full of vangels … really!
The icing on the vampire cookie comes when vangel Karl Mortensen rescues Faith Larson, a battered young waitress, from her abusive boyfriend and hides her in the castle amidst the Christmas chaos. But what Karl thought was a frail young teenager is actually a very tempting woman. And she thinks his fangs are sexy!
But a strange "Christmas visitor" at the castle and demon vampires up to their old tricks could threaten the budding romance between Karl and Faith. It's an impossible match—a human and a vangel—but Christmas is a time for magic.
Karl and Faith don't stand a chance …
So I read this one a little while ago, but for some reason I had forgotten to write the review for it!! LOL…so I do apologize, so I hope that I will be able to write a solid review and remember the thoughts I had while reading this one. Christmas In Transylvania is a novella, and is centered around Christmas–which is my all time favorite time of the year, and when I am reading my romances…there is just something so much better when its Christmas themed right? This book is after the fourth book “Kiss of Wrath” Now I have only read the first two books, but from what I remember I enjoyed them. When I was beginning this one, I started to remember what I loved about Sandra Hill. She has a very unique voice in her stories and no other author that I have read can even come close to her. I have enjoyed her books for many years, but this series is very unique. I started out with her Historical romance, which are some of her earlier books. She has many contemporaries, but this series, combines it with a mix of paranormal. The men and heroes in the series, are vampire viking angels!! In this short story we have a heroine that is being abused pretty badly, and the hero “Karl” finds her battered, and takes her away and hides her in the castle, and thus begins their romance. This book was a hoot, with characters from previous books, and for a short story this was very well done. I am very picky about novella’s, and in most cases would prefer a regular length novel, however for the shortage of the story I felt like it was pretty well developed, had some hilarious scenes, sexy viking angels, and women to match them in every way. Loved seeing the holiday theme and this story was a riot to read!! I had so much fun with it, and I just can’t wait to read more from this author. Definitely made me want to read the previous books that I have yet to get a hold of in the series. Rich in humor and steamy romance, and is perfect on a cold winters night while getting ready for the season!! Be prepared for a story to pull you in and wrap its way into your heart.
